"DIRECTIONS & TRANSPORTATION"
Most Harvard locations are within a few minutes walk from the center of Harvard Square. Our map indicates the most common destinations, including the Admissions and Financial Aid Office.
From I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike): Get off at Cambridge (exit 18). Turn left immediately onto Sodiers Field Road (west). Take Harvard Square exit, bear right across Anderson Bridge, and drive straight into harvard Square. For Byerly Hall, proceed through two lights - the first just before the Square (and Out of Town News), the second after passing through the Square. After the second light, get in the left-hand lane, bearing to the far left. Upon taking a sharp left turn at the next light, move directly to the right-most lane and follow it onto Garden Street. The Admissions Office is across the street on your left at 8 Garden Street, in Radcliffe Yard.
PARKING: On-street Parking is scarce in Cambridge. There are public parking lots and garages, however, the Harvard University Parking Office, 29 Garden street, sells day passes in University lots for $5.

TRAVELING AROUND BOSTON:
There are many ways of getting around Boston once you arrive. Obviously, if you have a car, this method would be efficient, but parking is difficult. for those looking for a good workout, a nice little walk in the beautiful streets of Boston can eventually get you from point A to point B. For those who hope to use some type of public transportation, Boston is conveniently equipped with a subway system courtesy of the MBTA. Individuals interested in using this form of transportation may find it beneficial to purchase a "MBTA three-day Boston Passport Visitor Pass" which will allow that individual an unlimited access to all subway lines and most MBTA buses. This three-day pass is sold at a cost $10 and will be an optional fee attached to the registration for those delegates that are interested.

Metered parking is found along most downtown streets, but finding a meter is another question. Parking in the streets of Boston can be very difficult at times, and unless you have exceptional "parking luck," a lengthy walk should be expected.
