Please call us if anything comes up and you need to change your appointment time. If you arrive more than 10 minutes early for your visit, please call us so that we can send someone to meet you early. Thank you!

Parking Information

If you are driving: We have parking available in the Warren Towers Parking Garage, Lot K at 700 Commonwealth Avenue, here is a link to an image of Warren Towers so you know what to look for (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Warren_Towers.jpg). The garage entrance, however, is on Hinsdale Mall, a side street off of Commonwealth Avenue. There is a visible street sign for Hinsdale Mall on Comm. Ave., after the Warren Towers building on the right side of the street, if you are driving east and towards Kenmore Square. This building has a City Convenience, Bank of America, and Citizens Bank on the ground floor. Turn right at the corner after you pass the Starbucks (this will put you onto Hinsdale Mall) and take an immediate right turn into the parking garage. Drive towards the booth. The parking attendant will have a record of your visit and will tell you where to park and a research assistant will meet you in the parking garage.

Driving Directions

From the West

Traveling east on the Massachusetts Turnpike, take the exit marked “Allston/Cambridge.” After paying the toll, follow signs to Cambridge (not Allston) until you come to the Charles River (do not cross river). There will be a light before the river and a hotel on your right. At the light, turn right onto Storrow Drive, following signs to Boston. You will encounter a sign that reads “Boston University – Next 2 Exits.” Take the first of these exits (looks rather like a driveway) right after you go under an overpass. After exiting to the right, proceed up the short hill; turn right at the stop sign onto Commonwealth Ave., then merge into the left lane. At the third light, make a U-turn, crossing over the trolley tracks (this will be your first legal opportunity to make a U-turn on Comm. Ave.). Travel on Comm. Ave. (now going in the opposite direction), past the BU Bridge, several stores, and three tall high-rise dormitories (Warren Towers at 700 Commonwealth Avenue) with yellow and white-striped awnings (here is a picture of the building: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Warren_Towers.jpg), then turn right onto Hinsdale Mall. The entrance to the parking garage, under Warren Towers, is immediately to your right.

From the South

Travel north on I-93 (the Southeast Expressway), exit right and follow signs to Storrow Drive. Remain in the middle lane, following signs to stay on Storrow Drive. From Storrow Drive, exit left at the Kenmore Square exit. Take the right-hand ramp, and at the first light, turn right onto Beacon Street. In Kenmore Square, stay on the right-hand side of Beacon and merge right onto Commonwealth Avenue. Once on Comm. Ave., stay in the left lane. Make a U-turn at St. Mary’s Street, drive straight, then take a right onto Hinsdale Mall, located just after the Starbucks in the high-rise Warren Towers building (Here is a link to an image of Warren Towers so you know what to look for (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Warren_Towers.jpg). The entrance to the parking garage is immediately to your right.

From the North

Take I-93 South toward Boston. Just after crossing the river, take the exit marked Storrow Drive, following signs to remain on Storrow. From there, follow the directions above for coming from the south.

Public Transportation

By T

Take a Green Line “B” train to the Boston University East stop. Upon exiting the trolley, cross over the trolley tracks and Commonwealth Avenue, and walk down Cummington Mall (the small, one-way street emptying onto Commonwealth at that intersection, there is a FedEx and  a City Convenience at the corner). After one block the road turns 90° to the left. Stay on the right-hand sidewalk. Enter the second set of glass doors and a researcher will be waiting for you there. (This is a 2-minute walk from the T stop.)

 Take any of the following bus routes to Kenmore Square: 8, 57, 60, 65, 8A. At Kenmore Square, board a westbound/outbound Green Line “B” train to Boston University East stop. Follow the T directions above.
