*The Gutman Conference Center and The Graduate School of Education do not provide parking facilities for Conference Center Events.
All day on-street parking is virtually impossible to find in or around Harvard Square. In many areas, on-street parking is prohibited without a resident permit. Listed below are five public parking facilities within walking distance of the Gutman Conference Center and one parking facility located at the Alewife T station. If you are planning to drive to the Gutman Conference Center, we advise you to park before registering for the conference. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to park.
The Church Street lot is the parking area closest to the Gutman Conference Center. From John F. Kennedy Street, go straight through the traffic lights at Memorial Drive, Eliot Street, and Mount Auburn Street. The next traffic light will put you in the center of Harvard Square, facing a newsstand called Crimson Corner. Take a sharp left at Crimson Corner, then bear right immediately onto Brattle Street. Take the first right onto Church Street, and the parking lot is halfway up the street on your left.
