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.

Participate

Be an active and informed member of the MassArt community. Participating 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!

Connect

Get to know your professors, staff members in Student Development, your work study supervisor, etc. They are important campus connections. Make sure to tell a faculty or staff member about obstacles associated with your commuting lifestyle that could impact classroom performance.

STUDENT PARKING

DAY-TIME PARKING (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. Parking permits will be valid from Wednesday, January 19, 2022 through Wednesday, May 18th, 2022.

Availability

This semester, we will have a limited number of spaces between the Greek Orthodox Church Lot and the Wentworth Parker Street Lot. The parking spaces are assigned per day of the week. This means, students will have to apply for specific days of the week for the semester.

Pricing

The cost of parking is $50 per weekday assigned to you. For example, if you are approved for Mondays and Wednesdays, the total cost for the semester would be $100.

Process

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 2022 class schedule to determine parking assignments. A copy of your Spring 2022 class schedule must also be included with your completed application.

If your schedule is not yet complete, please apply for all the days you believe you will have class and include a note on your parking application. The application is available here:
