If you plan on driving to the theater, find a garage in advance.


In addition to metered street parking, there are a number of parking lots and garages within walking distance to the Loeb Drama Center.  The theater offers validation for University Place Garage (124 Mount Auburn St., 617.491.0801) and for the Charles Square Garage (One Bennett Street, 617.491.0298) underneath The Charles Hotel. To obtain your validation for either University Place Garage or Charles Square Garage, bring your parking ticket to the A.R.T. reception desk at the theater. Please note that rates for both garages are subject to change. Click here to see current rates for the Charles Square Garage.
Additionally, both garages offer select discounts with coupons that you can print at home and bring to the garage with you.
Please note: during Harvard's graduation week, validations and coupons may not be accepted.
The entrance to the Charles Square Garage is beneath the Charles Hotel. The entrance to the University Place Garage is on University Rd. To get to the theater from either garage, walk north along University Road to Mt. Auburn Street. Take a left on Mt. Auburn Street, proceed for one block, and then turn right onto Hilliard Street. The theater is one block ahead at the corner of Hilliard and Brattle.
