Parking and Directions


Wedding-day parking on the weekend or on Fridays after 5pm will be complimentary to you and your guests, upon availability, in the University parking lot (Lot J) behind the College of Arts and Sciences, located at 725 Commonwealth Ave .Parking cannot be guaranteed during the week.

Lot J can be accessed by heading west on Bay State Road, which runs parallel to and between Commonwealth Avenue and the Charles River.

If Lot J should fill up, guests will be directed to alternate BU lots. Unfortunately we cannot arrange parking for the rehearsal, but there are metered spots and pay parking lots nearby on Bay State Road and Commonwealth Ave.


Marsh Chapel is located at 735 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA 02215.

There is a handicapped lift for use by your guests in the Marsh Chapel. The lift is located on the west side of the building off of Marsh Plaza. Please access the lift from the Commonwealth Avenue side as the lift is level with the street.

The lift is key-operated, so it is best to alert the wedding director prior to the wedding day should the lift be needed.

Though the sanctuary is handicap accessible, there is no convenient restroom on the main floor, and no access to the lower levels of the Chapel.
