Directions

The university is currently undertaking a number of construction and improvement projects.  When traveling to campus, please allow additional time for driving and parking.  

On weekdays between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., parking is primarily dedicated to students, faculty, and staff.  Due to construction, special event or conference guests may not find parking immediately adjacent to their event location.     

Beginning on January 28, 2013 we encourage event and conference attendees to park at the UMass Boston Bayside Lot on Mt. Vernon Street.

A free shuttle bus (#3) runs to-and-from the Bayside lot to the Campus.
