Parking on campus can be something of an adventure. But if you arrive by or before 8:30am it is much easier. For both locations, if you are driving we strongly recommend parking in Parking Structure 6, also known as the Wilbur Field Underground Parking Garage. Its a very short walk to The David Rumsey Map Center. Be sure to park in visitor parking spaces, and pay for a full day at the parking permit machines. You can also use the Parkmobile app to pay for your space.
