PARKING

ARRIVE EARLY Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the performance. Late seating is at the discretion of the House Manager and not until an appropriate break occurs, usually a pause or intermission.

Concert Hall Events

For Concert Hall events, free and secure parking is available off Massachusetts Avenue in University lots 32, 34, and 71, and in Visitor Parking, after 5 p.m. and all day on weekends. While #62 lot (across North Pleasant Street from Bezanson Recital Hall) has fewer spaces due to construction, there is a new #62 lot near French Hall (one block north from the current #62 lot) with 86 spaces. Access is via Thatcher Way or Stockbridge Road.  Lot #63 (across from current #62), is also available with 46 spaces. A map with pathways near #62 lots is below or refer to the UMass interactive parking map.

Bowker Auditorium Events

For Bowker Auditorium events, parking is available in the Campus Center Parking Garage for $1 with remittance of your ticket stub. Parking is also available in lots 65 and 45. For patrons with disabilities, parking is available at the base of the ramp at the right rear entrance. Additional accessible parking is available in lot 65. An access-parking permit must be visible to parking attendants. (click here for campus map)
 
Please note that there is another building adjacent to Lot 65 called the Stockbridge School of Agriculture – this is NOT the correct building. The performance is in Stockbridge Hall, which is the building to the right of the parking area, or south of the parking lot and closer to the Campus Center parking garage.

Gallery Events

For University Museum of Contemporary Art exhibits, parking is available in the Robsham Visitors Center, around Presidents Drive, or in the Lincoln Campus Center Parking Garage.
