Parking around Harvard is quite limited, but there are a few hourly parking garages in the area. Here's a list of said parking garages with their posted on-line rates:

1.) Harvard Square Parking Garage, 617.491.0298, 1 Bennett Street, Cambridge

Metered parking is free on Sundays in Cambridge and the restricted parking in the neighborhoods is generally not so. However, yeah, it's very tight in that area, particularly during the school year.
It may be best to park in a different area and then take a bus in and back.3 round-trip.

Could you share where I could get a free meter parking that is near the campus? I believe I could find a lot as I intent to be there very early Sunday morning (say 8am). :)Thanks

You can try going down Brattle Street. Or along Cambridge Common. Be sure you check all the signs, even on Sunday.

Most of the streets around Harvard Squ are metered and like the earlier posts stated you don't have to put money in the meters on Sunday...and you can stay all day if you want to - no time limit. If you are going to be there that early on Sunday you shouldn't have a problem finding parking. Mass Ave (Massachusetts Ave) is all metered parking as well.

Good luck!

As a side note: I've never parked in any of the paid lots around Harvard Squ and I go there every 2 wks or so. I've always circled around and found a spot.

Have fun in Harvard Square! Eat at Border Cafe (Mexican) - great food and cheap!
