Parking and Transit
planning ahead for next summer?
Check back in January, when we'll post the general course listings for 2018. If you join our email list, we'll contact you when the information is live.
Parking in Cambridge and Boston is extremely limited. You are encouraged to walk, bike, or use public transportation instead of bringing vehicles to campus.
For directions on getting to campus via car or public transportation, see Directions to Campus. You can also find information on nearby airports and taxi service.
Parking applications and fees
If you do drive, permits are required for parking on Harvard University property. Parking for Summer School students with a valid parking permit is available in the Soldiers Field Garage on a space-available basis. You may apply for a parking permit in person at the Campus Service Center once your classes begin. For details, see the Summer School Parking section of the Campus Service Center website or call (617) 496-7827.
Shuttle and van services
Shuttles services are open to all students during the summer term. The shuttles run in the evenings and connect the Yard and Houses with other campus locations. Full shuttle routes and schedules will be posted later this spring.
Daytime van services
The daytime van service is designed for Harvard community members who, as a result of physical impairment or a medical condition, find it difficult or impossible to use the regular fully accessible shuttle bus. Students who wish to use the daytime van service should contact the accessibility services office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Evening van services
All students may request the full service evening van. Full schedule and hours will be posted later this spring.
