Directions & Parking

We are located in the Gymnastics Room (W31 140) at MIT's duPont Gymnasium, on the corner of Massachusetts Ave. and Vassar St., in Cambridge, MA.  We are very easy to get to by both car and public transportation.

NOTE:  The actual address of duPont Gymnasium is 120 Massachusetts Ave., however you must enter the facility through the Zesiger Sports & Fitness Center at 120 Vassar St.

MIT duPont Gymnasium: Enter through Zesiger Center, 120 Vassar St., Cambridge, MA 02139


MBTA - Bus:  Take either the #1 or CT1 bus to the stop at MIT (77 Mass Ave. for North-bound, and Albany St. & Mass Ave. -or- 84 Mass Ave. for South-bound), or the CT2 to the Mass Ave. @ Vassar St. stop.

MBTA - T:  Take the Red Line to either Kendall Sq. (about a 12-minute walk down Vassar St.), or to Central Sq. (about a 15-minute walk down Mass Ave.).

Please check the MBTA's website for schedules and routes.

Driving: To get customized driving directions, just plug our address into your GPS. (However, please note the MapQuest seems to have the marker on the map in the incorrect place on Vassar St., so please only use Google Maps until the problem can be fixed.)  Also be aware that driving in Cambridge and Boston in rush hour can be not great, so taking public transit is recommended if possible.


You can drive, and there is parking.  However, depending on when you're coming 
(i.e. time of day and day of week)
, driving may be slow and parking may be limited and/or not free.  Parking options are:
