Illegally parked vehicles on Harvard University property are subject to tow at the owner’s expense. Tow fees are set by the municipal government. If you feel your car has been towed, you should contact the Parking Office at 617 496-7827 during regular business hours (M-F 8:00am to 5:00pm). After-hour inquires should be directed to the Harvard University Police Department at 617-495-1215.

A tow release slip and payment must be presented to the tow company to obtain your vehicle. You must first pay off your citation balance at the Parking Office before the tow release slip will be issued. Parking Services accepts cash, checks, credit cards and term bill for students as methods of payment.
