Longwood Reciprocal Agreement

Longwood Medical Area/Cambridge Reciprocal Parking Agreement

Parking Services is always striving to make parking as convenient as possible for the University community. To help accommodate those who hold Longwood Medical Area parking permits, but have occasional University business on the Cambridge or Allston Campuses, Parking Services has modified its regulations concerning this matter.

Those holding valid Harvard Medical School day permits are authorized to park in the following areas on a space-available basis, weekdays before 5:00 p.m.:

    • 10 Everett Street Garage
    • 52 Oxford Street Garage;
    • Broadway Garage;
    • Business School Lot.

The Broadway and 52 Oxford facilities will provide HMS permit holders an orange permit to place on their dashboards.

Those who must use parking facilities for University business after 5:00 p.m. and on weekends may park in unreserved areas. For details on which areas are unreserved and approved for parking after 5:00 p.m., please visit our campus map by clicking here.

HMS visitors holding any other LMA permit that is not a monthly day permit must purchase a visitor's permit from our self service Daily Parking Permit purchase system, or from the Parking office at Smith Campus Center (formerly Holyoke Center) 8th Floor, 1350 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge. Any vehicle parked on University property without a valid permit displayed is subject to ticket and tow. These regulations are enforced on a 24-hour basis, including weekends and University holidays.

Similarly, those holding valid annual Harvard University Cambridge/Allston permits are authorized to park in the Quad Garage located at 200 Longwood Ave or the NRB Garage located at 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur on a space-available basis, weekdays 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. This reciprocal parking is only for short term business related meetings on the HMS campus, not full-day parking. The Quad and NRB Garage booth attendant will provide Cambridge/Allston permit holders a permit to place on their dashboard as well as a temporary access card. 

The Medical School Parking Office requires you to email your parking request to parking@hms.harvard.edu  or call 617-432-1111 prior to arriving on campus, in order to confirm the availability of a parking space. Cambridge/Allston visitors holding any other permit that is not an annual permit must call 617 432-1111 or reserve a parking space using a Harvard 33 digit billing code at https://internal.parking.med.harvard.edu/default2.aspx.

Any vehicle parked on University property without a valid permit displayed is subject to ticket and tow. These regulations are enforced on a 24-hour basis, including weekends and University holidays.
