Location and Parking

The Cambridge campus takes only a few minutes to walk across, as indicated by this map. The Science Center is a large, contemporary, concrete building looming above the older brick quad and acting as a gateway to newer northern parts of the campus. It is home to three academic departments (History of Science, Mathematics, and Statistics); the Cabot Science Library; and the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments.

Driving from the East or West (I90)

From the Massachusetts Turnpike (Mass Pike - Rt. 90, East and Westbound), take Exit 18 (Allston or Brighton/Cambridge). Go through toll and bear right toward Cambridge, then get into far left lane at set of traffic lights. At 2nd traffic light (before the bridge across from the Doubletree Guest Suite Hotel) turn left onto Storrow Drive; Soldiers Field Road; exit at Harvard Square. Turn right to cross the bridge. You will be on JFK Street headed into Harvard Square.

Driving from the South (I-93 North)

Heading north on Route 93, exit onto the Mass Pike westbound. See above.

Driving from Logan Airport

As you leave the airport, follow signs to Rt. 90, Mass. Turnpike West. See above.

Driving from the North (I-93 South)

Heading south on Route 93 exit onto Storrow Drive west. Take Harvard Square/Cambridge exit, turn right and proceed over bridge and across Memorial Drive onto JFK Street and into Harvard Square.

Parking in Harvard Square

Parking is available to symposium attendees at Harvard for a fee of $25.00 (non-students) or $15.00 (students). This covers parking for both days (no discount for 1-day parking). See the registration form for more information. The $25.00/$15.00 fee must be paid (along with other fees) when you mail the completed form to Harvard.

On-street parking is scarce in Cambridge, but there are several public parking lots and garages. Click here for a map with parking locations. Permitted parking is available at the Harvard garages; see Parking Services for more information.

Public Transportation

The "T" (short for the MBTA, Boston's subway network) is a very good way to get to Harvard from most places in the Greater Boston area. The Harvard Square stop on the Red Line is less than five minutes from the Science Center. "T" access to and from Logan Airport is reliable and inexpensive.

Another set of directions is found here (if helpful).
