You may leave belongings (luggage, bags, etc) in my office, 15 Saint Mary’s Street, Room 119.  In your down time, when you don’t have meetings or a lab tour, you may hang out in the 15 Saint Mary’s Street lobby, in Room 105 (until 2pm), or at Pavement, a coffee shop at 736 Commonwealth Avenue (ask me how to get there without going outside except a brief door-to-door sprint).
