Getting to the Career Education Center

The Career Education Center is located on the academic campus in the Center for Student Success on the ground floor of the Lefavour Building (#2 on the Academic Campus Map).


We strongly encourage all visitors to the Simmons University campus to consider taking public transportation before driving to campus. Limited on-campus parking is available at a discounted rate to visitors of the CEC. Parking may be obtained by employers, alumnae/i, and certain other guests. Current Simmons students and Simmons staff and faculty cannot request parking through the CEC. To request visitor parking, please e-mail

Some important parking notes:

The on-campus garage is located under the Academic Campus quadrangle and can be accessed from Avenue Louis Pasteur (access road is between the Park Science Building and Boston Latin School).

Parking in the on-campus garage is limited; permission to park only guarantees a discounted parking pass, not a parking spot in the garage. If the Simmons University garage is full, a sign will be posted outside the gate and you will need to park at a parking meter on a nearby street or at a local off-campus parking lot/garage
When entering the garage, you will receive a white ticket at the entrance gate. This ticket, combined with the discounted ticket you receive in our office, is necessary to exit the garage at the discounted rate. If the white ticket is lost, you will need to go to the Campus Card Office (Palace Road Building, P107) or pay the unvalidated rate to exit the garage.

The unvalidated parking rate is $50 per day — anyone who enters the garage without getting approval at least 24 hours in advance will be required to pay the unvalidated rate.

For full parking details, including discounted parking rates, please see the Simmons Visitor Parking web page.
