Parking Regulations

A limited number of parking spaces are available for commuter students on a first-come, first-served basis. A parking application must be submitted to the Vice President for Student Affairs each semester for approval. We strongly encourage the use of public transportation. The MBTA Green Line Fenway station is a short walk from the Emmanuel campus. Please contact the Office of Student Financial Services to purchase a monthly MBTA pass.

Student Parking
Commuter students who wish to park on campus must submit an application to the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Resident students who move off campus to locations in or surrounding the City of Boston are not considered for parking permits. The Parking Committee reviews applications and notifies applicants prior to the start of class. Fees for the 2015-2016 academic year are $375.00(classes scheduled four days or more); $225.00 (classes scheduled three days or less). Once a student is approved for semester parking, the fee is added to the student's account which must be paid in full before any permit is issued.

Day Passes
Resident students with temporary extenuating circumstances may request a one-day parking permit in advance of bringing a car to campus. These one-day permits may be purchased at the Office of Campus Safety for a fee of $10.00 per day. At no time should a student show up to campus with a car and expect to receive a parking permit. In the event that a student brings a car to campus without prior approval, and the student is permitted to park, the charge for a one-day parking permit is $20.00.

Handicapped Parking
Handicapped parking spaces are located at the south entrance to the Administration Building, on the south side of St. Ann Residence Hall, and in front of the Cardinal Cushing Library. Handicapped parking is provided for officially marked vehicles with an Emmanuel parking permit. Motor vehicles that are not properly marked and are parked in handicapped or reserved spaces will be towed.

Safe Driving
Campus Safety will not condone the operation of motor vehicles in an unsafe or threatening manner. The following conditions will not be allowed on campus:

  • Driving an unregistered vehicle
  • Driving without a proper license or with a revoked license
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving on walkways or unpaved areas

Snow Removal
During the winter months, a snow emergency may be declared. Failure to move cars to facilitate snow removal will result in immediate towing. Declaration of snow emergency and parking restrictions will be posted on Emmanuel's e-mail and conferencing system.

Vehicles may not park on the Emmanuel campus without a properly displayed permit or pass. Unauthorized vehicles parked on campus will be towed at the owner's expense. Tow payments are made directly to the tow company for release of the motor vehicle and are the responsibility of the owner. Please note that these enforcement procedures are designed to ensure that parking is available for eligible faculty, staff and students.

Visitor Parking
Permission for visitor parking may be obtained through the Office of Campus Safety. Fees are set at the beginning of each academic year. Any visitor's car that remains on campus without a valid parking permit for that day will be towed at the owner's expense.
