Parking is available in the West Lot located on the corner of Huntington Avenue and Ruggles Street.  Please note that West Lot parking is limited.  If the lot is filled, you will be directed to the Parker Street Lot.  In the event that on campus parking fills, you will be directed to the garage at the Museum of Fine Arts. Anyone directed to this garage may bring their ticket to the Public Safety table in the gym for full validation.

We also encourage guests to use public transportation. Our neighboring MBTA stops are the Museum of Fine Arts stop on the the Green 'E' line and the Ruggles stop on the Orange line. Please visit our website for more detailed directions and travel information.

Campus representatives from various student affairs departments will be on hand to answer questions related to their areas (public safety, housing, technology services, financial aid, counseling and disability services, etc). Don't worry, these tables will be staffed all day if you miss anyone in the morning.
