Parking for Suffolk Employees
Parking is limited at the University, and we encourage all employees to use public transportation. Before you decide to drive, be sure you know your options for public transportation, car pooling, and biking to work. You should also learn about the University's commuter benefits plan.
Does the University have parking garages?
The University maintains two parking garages; one in Sargent Hall at 120 Tremont Street, and one in the Rosalie K. Stahl Center at 73 Tremont Street.
The Sargent Hall garage is a self-parking facility which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is monitored by SUPD.
The Stahl Center garage is an attended facility which is open Monday – Friday, 6:00 am to 8:00 pm; Saturday, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and Sunday 8:00 am – 2:00 pm. Vehicles in the Stahl Center garage at closing time are placed outside on Tremont Place. Keys for cars parked on Tremont Place may be picked up at the security desk in the lobby of the Stahl Center.
How can I rent a parking space?
Parking spaces are rented to employees on an annual basis (July 1 – June 30) for a monthly fee. The monthly fee for the current year is $370 for both locations. The monthly fee is set by the University annually prior to July 1. The fee is deducted from the employee’s pay check. A portion of the fee is pre-tax. Employees must maintain the parking contract for the entire year.
Annual rental contracts for parking spaces for motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, and similar motorized vehicles are available in Sargent Hall for $92.50 a month.
Each spring, there is an annual enrollment period for available spaces in both garages. If there are more requests for spaces than spaces available, parking contracts are issued on a seniority basis. Those who request, but do not receive a space, are placed on a waiting list for the next available space.
Employees who have been issued handicapped license placards will be given priority for an annual parking contract in the Stahl Center garage during the normal enrollment period.
Contact the Construction and Facilities Services office at 617-573-8606 or DCFS@suffolk.edu to see if any space is available in either garage or for more information.
Is there somewhere I can park if I have a temporary medical need?
Parking places are available for employees who need an accommodation in accordance with Americans with Disabilities Act as amended (ADAAA). These parking spots are available at a slightly discounted daily rate. Please contact Human Resources at email@example.com or by phone at 617-573-8415.
