Street Parking & Public Garages

Due to limited parking in the urban area around Simmons, we encourage visitors, students, staff, and faculty to use alternative transportation when commuting to Simmons. Limited parking is available on nearby streets and private garages.

Street Parking

The majority of available street parking spaces have city parking meters which require payment via quarters. Please be sure to follow any rules listed on the street meters and street signs to avoid being ticketed or towed by the city.

Streets with some available metered parking near the Main Academic Campus include The Fenway, Palace Road, and Evans Way. On the opposite side of the Muddy River from the Main Academic Campus, some metered parking is available on Park Drive, Kilmarnock Street, Peterborough Street, and Queensberry Street.

Near the Main Residence Campus, some metered parking is available on Brookline Avenue

Public Garage Parking

The Longwood Medical Area and Fenway area have a significant number of privately-owned park-for-a-fee garages which are not affiliated with Simmons University. Contact the garages for current rates. View a map of parking garages in the area.
