Parking On Campus

University Disability Resources (UDR) and Parking Services jointly manage all parking policy and parking requests based on disability. Persons who require accessible parking as a reasonable accommodation will not be required to pay more than the applicable rate for similarly situated individuals without disabilities who park in the same facility. Accessible permits may be purchased online for the following locations: Broadway Garage, 52 Oxford Street Garage, 10 Everett Street Garage.  Note: Free parking may be available for ticketed events. See venue parking information below.

Purchase accessible Online Daily Permits. (If you do not have an assigned code, please use – Department: Visitor to Campus, Department Code: 7700)

For more information about accessible parking spaces, please phone Parking Services at 617.496.7827 or email

Sanders Theatre

Sanders Theatre is accessible on the floor level with ramps at both entrances to the Memorial Transept (lobby). The north entrance is off Kirkland Street and the south entrance is off Cambridge Street. Note: the Theatre does not provide wheelchairs. Accessible seating in the Theatre is on the Orchestra level only, sold at all price levels based upon availability. There are elevators in the building that lead to restrooms in the basement; however, not to Mezzanine or Balcony seating.

Sanders Theatre is equipped with assisted listening devices for hearing enhancement. Please check with the box office manager or production manager to borrow a device. Our Sennheiser Infrared Assistive Listening System devices include both Sennheiser RI 100-J stethophone receivers and EZT 100 Induction Neckloops for use with hearing aids.

Sanders Theatre allows service animals in the theatre to accompany an event attendee. Service Animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the Service Animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective means. Read more about Service Animals from the Harvard University Disability Resources.

Accessible parking at Sanders Theatre: There is no parking at Sanders Theatre itself. Patrons may be dropped off in the circle driveway on the Kirkland Street side of Sanders Theatre near the accessible entrance, at 6 Kirkland Street. We encourage patrons to park at either the Broadway Garage or the 52 Oxford Street Garage. The Broadway Garage is accessible with a few spaces on the first floor that can be used for accessible parking. There are curb cuts at all crosswalks between the garage and the Theatre. If necessary, a limited number of accessible parking spaces may be available in a nearby location by advance arrangement only. It is extremely difficult to honor requests received less than 2 business days prior to an event - please plan ahead and contact the office as early as possible. To arrange for an Accessible Parking Space in a nearby parking lot, please contact University Disability Resources via email at, via phone at 617.495.1859 or via TTY at 617.496.0466.
