On-Campus Parking 

All individuals parking on campus are required to have a valid parking permit/sticker or Temporary Parking Pass. Parking during the hours of 7:00AM and 5:00PM daily, seven days a week, is restricted to Emmanuel passholders who have been approved for parking. Please note that parking passes are not available to non-Emmanuel students. 

For questions regarding student semester parking, please email  

Commuter Students 
Parking is available to commuter students living outside of the below-listed zip codes. The student must submit a parking permit application to the Campus Safety Office each academic year for approval during the communicated parking application timeline via the Engage platform. Approval in a previous year does not guarantee receiving another in future academic years. Students who are cross registered for classes on the Emmanuel College campus are not eligible to receive a parking permit or pass.  

Athletic participation is also not a rationale for a parking permit. The Student Parking Coordinator reviews applications and notifies applicants prior to the start of classes. Fees for the 2023-24 academic year are to be determined.

The College does not issue parking permits to resident students commuting to, or to commuters who live in, the following zip-codes: 02101 - 02145, 02163, 02196 - 02241, 02266, 02283 - 02298, 02445 – 02467. 

Please note that a commuter parking permit is not an overnight parking pass.

Resident Students 
A limited number of parking permits are available to resident students with demonstrated need. The student must submit a parking permit application to the Campus Safety office via the Engage platform each semester for approval. Approval in a previous semester does not guarantee receiving another permit in future semesters. Parking is available only to students with either approved accommodations via Emmanuel College Disability Support Services or a for-credit academic need (Emmanuel College-facilitated, credit-earning internships/clinicals) outside of commuting proximity via public transportation. Due to the limited number of permits, and the academic needs for Third and Fourth year students, First and Second year resident students ARE NOT eligible to purchase a resident parking permit. Fees for the 2023-24 academic year are to be determined.

For approved credit earning internship/clinical locations falling within the following zip codes, residential students will be expected to take public transportation:  02101 - 02145, 02163, 02196 - 02241, 02266, 02283 - 02298, 02445 – 02467.

Handicapped Parking

Handicapped parking spaces are located at the south entrance to the Administration Building and throughout the parking garage.  The College will tow motor vehicles that are not properly placarded and parked in handicapped or reserved spaces.

Any unsafe motor vehicle operation may result in the revocation of on campus driving privileges by Campus Safety. 

Snow Removal

Vehicles may not park on the Emmanuel campus in an unsafe or unauthorized location.  All parked vehicles shall have a properly displayed permit or pass. The College will tow unauthorized vehicles parked on campus at the owner's expense. Tow fees are the responsibility of the owner.
