Commuter Programs

Commuter Programs, located in the Office of Student Development, seeks to aid our commuter students in learning about the variety of resources on and off campus. The program provides resources and programming to help students become active participants in campus life and contributing members of their community.

Be an active and informed member of the MassArt community. Participate in college activities is a great way to meet people and get involved at MassArt. Keep informed of daily events and activities by accessing the events calendar. Check your MassArt email account for valuable information including campus wide announcements. It is essential for commuter students to have an active College email account. Remember, College officials who may need to contact you will not have access to personal email addresses. Don't take a chance on missing out; check your MassArt Gmail account every day!

Student Parking

Day-Time (before 5pm)

All enrolled and newly accepted commuter students (graduate, undergraduate, part-time, PCE, and Certificate) are eligible to apply for parking using the parking application form. Paid student parking is available in our Church Lot, located at 514 Parker St, for $50 per day assigned for the semester. For example, if you attend classes two days per week, the fee is $100 for the semester. Weekend access to Ward Lot is included. Applications for the fall semester are accepted between Patriots Day (3rd Monday in April) and the first Friday in June. Applications for the spring semester are accepted between Veteran’s Day (November 11th) and the first Friday in December. Your application MUST BE SUBMITTED by the Friday deadline in order to be considered on-time.

Parking assignments will be determined using a point system which was developed in response to feedback gathered from a survey of students who requested criteria such as distance traveled and seniority be prioritized. The point system uses class standing, distance traveled and access to public transportation in addition to special circumstances as approved by the parking office. To maximize the use of the limited parking spaces, the total number of points will be used in combination with the applicant’s Spring 2019 class schedule to determine parking assignments. Students must rank on the application all the days of the week they want parking using numbers 1-5. A copy of your Spring 2019 class schedule must also be included with your completed application.

The Church lot is about a five minute walk from campus and a free shuttle van operates from 7:00am - 11:00pm weekdays. There is no shuttle on weekends. If you miss the last shuttle you can request transportation from the Public Safety office (on the first floor of the North Building, next to the tower building on Evans Way, there is a blue light outside the door) or by calling 617.879.7810.
