We are located at 100 Bay State Road, but the elevator lobby is easiest to access via either of the two entrances on Deerfield Street.

Driving directions can be found on the Boston University campus map.

We are also easily accessible by the MBTA:

  • Take any B, C, or D Green Line train to Kenmore Square. Once at Kenmore Square, take the exit to the right (to Beacon Street/Boston University).
  • At the top of the stairs, take a left. The next street is Deerfield Street; take a right on Deerfield. The Yawkey Center for Student Services is the large brick building to your left.


Meters are often available on Deerfield Street, Bay State Road, or Commonwealth Avenue (although during Red Sox home games, vacant meters in this area become scarce).

For extended visits, we suggest the pay lot on the corner of Deerfield Street and Commonwealth Avenue.
