  • Live off-campus.
  • Have a Simmons ID card.

If you are a full-time commuter student and would like to purchase a semester parking permit you must meet the following criteria as well:

  • Must be enrolled in classes full-time as defined by the Registrar (12 credits or more for undergraduates and 8 credits or more for graduate students). If a student is registered as undergraduate and graduate the less restrictive criteria will apply.
  • Be financially cleared by Student Financial Services. A semester tuition bill is considered cleared if the tuition has been paid in full or if financial aid covers all costs. To confirm that you are cleared, please call Student Financial Services at 617-521-2001.
Faculty and Staff

Employee parking is available in the Main Academic Campus Garages, accessible from Avenue Louis Pasteur. All Simmons employees are required to park in the Palace Road garage within 15 minutes of entering the garage. This policy ensures that the Palace Road building is secure at all times.

How to Enter the Palace Road Garage

At the bottom of the main entry ramp right after you enter the garage on the first floor take three quick lefts, and then you will face the gate that leads into the Palace Road garage. Your Simmons ID will allow you to enter through the gate. See a diagram of the garage.
