Student Parking Information

Out of State Registration Notice

Special Parking Notice

Students that operate a car with out-of-state registration must complete a Non-Resident Student Information Form each year, regardless of whether or not they park on campus. If you are a student who drives a vehicle with out-of-state registration, please complete and print out this Non-Resident Driver Statement form and bring it to the Campus Services Office. You will be issued a window sticker indicating that you are a non-resident student attending school in Massachusetts. The Non-Resident Student decal is provided free of charge. Failure to register may result in a fine from any Massachusetts police officer of up to $200.


To apply for parking, please complete the online application.

Please note: You will receive a hang tag to display in your vehicle. Payment of the parking permit fee for the semester must be made when you pick up your permit in Campus Services Office, Pilgrim Student Center.

Disability Parking

There are marked disability parking spaces in the 25 Pilgrim Open Lot, 65 Pilgrim Road garage, and 43 Hawes Street Open Lot. These spaces require a valid HP plate or tag.

If you have a temporary disability and require an accommodation, please contact the Office of Access and Disability Resources.  A valid Wheelock permit is also required for use in these spaces.

You will be asked to provide documentation from your medical provider.  Temporary disability permits are usually granted for 30 days only and are used in conjunction with a valid Wheelock permit. All parking rules and regulations apply to temporary disability permits.

Designated Low-Emission & Fuel Efficient Parking Spaces

As part of our sustainability efforts, three (3) parking spaces will be dedicated in the 25 Pilgrim Road lot for low-emission and fuel-efficient vehicles. Signs will be posted to designate those spaces. Qualified vehicles will receive a windshield cling sticker in addition to the usual Wheelock hang tag, both of which must be properly displayed while parking in these spaces. Vehicles that do not qualify are prohibited from parking in these spaces and will be towed.

This list is determined by standards set by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Low-emission and fuel-efficient vehicles are defined as vehicles that are either classified as Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) by the California Air Resources Board or have achieved a minimum green score of 45 on the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) annual vehicle rating guide. This list is administered by ACEEE.ORG and GREENERSCARS. New model vehicles, which may not be rated yet, will be evaluated case by case.
