Parking

Note: Parking can be very difficult in Harvard Square. If you are unable to find on-street parking, we suggest you try one of the following commercial parking lots.

The Church Street Lot is the parking area closest to the Radcliffe Institute. From John F. Kennedy Street, go straight through the traffic lights at Memorial Drive, Eliot Street, and Mount Auburn Street. The next traffic light will put you in the center of Harvard Square. Take a sharp left, then bear right immediately onto Brattle Street. Take the first right onto Church Street. The parking lot is halfway up the street on your left.

From John F. Kennedy Street, go straight through the traffic lights at Memorial Drive, then turn left at the first light onto Eliot Street. Harvard Square Parking Garage is immediately on your right.


From John F. Kennedy Street, go straight through the traffic lights at Memorial Drive, then turn left at the first light onto Eliot Street. Go straight through the next light onto Bennett Street. Bennett Street dead ends onto University Road. Turn left onto University Road, and University Place Garage is immediately on your left.

Charles Hotel Lot is located across the street from the University Place Garage and below the Charles Hotel. Follow the previous instructions to the University Place Garage. When you are on Bennett Street, look for the Charles Hotel parking garage on your left.

Parking is available at Alewife T Station at the intersection of Route 2 and Route 16, and midway between Massachusetts Avenue and Fresh Pond Circle. Alewife T Station is located on the Red Line and any train will take you to Harvard T station (the third stop from Alewife and approximately a fifteen-minute ride).
