Harvard Map
Most Harvard locations are within a few minutes walk from the center of Harvard Square.
From I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike): Get off at Cambridge (exit 18). Turn left immediately onto Soldiers Field Road (west). Take Harvard Square exit,, bear right across Anderson Bridge, and drive straight into Harvard Square. For Byerly Hall, proceed through two lights - the first just before the Square (and Out of Town News), the second after passing through the Square. After the second light, get in the left-hand lane, bearing to the far left. Upon taking a sharp left turn at the next light, move directly to the right-most lane and follow it onto Garden Street. The Admissions Office is across the street on your left at 8 Garden Street, in Radcliffe Yard.
Parking: On-street parking is scarce in Cambridge. There are public parking lots and garages, however, and the Harvard University Parking Office, 29 Garden Street, sells day passes in University lots for $5.
By subway (the "T"): Take the shuttle bus to the AIRPORT T stop (BLUE LINE). Take the BLUE LINE inbound four stops to GOVERNMENT CENTER. Change to the GREEN LINE westbound and go one stop to PARK STREET. Switch to the RED LINE outbound (toward ALEWIFE), go four stops and get off at HARVARD. The subway ride from Logan Airport can take 45 to 60 minutes. Tokens cost 85 cents.
By taxi: The ride to Harvard Square takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic. Typically, the ride from Logan Airport to Harvard Square costs about $25.
FROM SOUTH STATION (Trains and Buses)
By subway: Take the RED LINE toward ALEWIFE from South Station six stops to HARVARD.
