Parking and MBTA Policy

As an urban institution in the heart of Boston, Suffolk University Law School does not provide parking for students. However, the Law School participates in the Semester MBTA Program which offers students the opportunity to prepay for a semester of T-passes at a discount. Please contact the Dean of Students Office for more information.

For more information on subway, trolley, bus, and commuter rail fares, please go to the MBTA website.

In addition, the Law School has discounted parking arrangements with several area garages*.

Bicycle Parking

Bicycles are not permitted inside buildings with the exception of the parking garage which is located in the basement of Sargent Hall, 120 Tremont Street. There are two bicycle racks located in the Sargent Hall parking garage for students and staff members of Suffolk University and Suffolk Law School. All students and staff who wish to use the bicycle rack in the garage will be required to register their bicycle. Registration forms are available in the SUPD communications office in the garage. A list of bicycle riders will be maintained at the communications desk.

Registered bike riders can access the parking garage by utilizing campus assistance call box located on the wall at the entrance to the parking garage off of Hamilton Place. Registered bike riders entering the garage must check in with the dispatch officer assigned to the garage. Bicycles must be properly secured. Any bicycles left over 30 days will be removed. We strongly recommend always securing your bicycle every time, whether in the garage or outside of the university. We also recommend a U-shaped lock for bicycles due to the sturdy design and increased security it provide over a wire or chain lock.
