Other Ways to Get to Campus

Due to limited amount of parking on campus, we highly encourage for people to take other means of transportation to get to campus. Here are some recommendations.

List of 2 items.

  • + MBTA

    The most direct routes to campus are the #73 and #71 bus:
    From the Harvard stop on the MBTA Red Line, take a bus for Waverly (#73 bus) or Watertown (#71 Bus) from the underground station at Harvard. Get off at Coolidge Avenue, cross Mt. Auburn Street, and walk up Coolidge Avenue to the second left, Coolidge Hill. Turn left, keep right at the next fork, and walk down to the school.

    From Waverly or Watertown, take a Mt. Auburn bus toward Harvard Square. Get off at Coolidge Avenue, at the corner of the Mt. Auburn Cemetery. Walk up Coolidge Avenue to Coolidge Hill and down to the school as above.
  • + Walking & Biking

    For those who cross Mt. Auburn Street on the way to School, the recommended route is to cross Mt. Auburn Street at either Greenough Blvd. (in front of BB&N), or at Coolidge Ave. The Mt. Auburn Street/Fresh Pond Parkway intersection is not recommended for any walker or biker at any time.
