The School of Medicine is located in the South End, parallel to the 93 expressway near its interchange with the Mass Pike (I-90).  From 93 (north or south bound) take Exit 18 and from the Mass Pike (I-90) merge onto I-93 South and then take Exit 18.  From Exit 18, at the traffic light, turn onto the access road; stay in right lane. At end of access road, turn right onto Massachusetts Ave.  From Massachusetts Ave, take first right onto Albany St. The School of Medicine is located about two blocks down on the left, set back from Albany Street. A hourly fee visitor parking garage is located at 710 Albany St.

We are located about a 5-minute walk from the Silver Line MBTA bus route (Washington St/Newton St bus stop) and about a 20-minute walk from the Orange Line MBTA train at Back Bay station (or you can catch an MBTA bus at the station that will take you directly to the BU Medical Campus).  

Once inside the School of Medicine bear right, and just past the security desk there will be elevators on the left. Take the elevators to the 14th floor and turn right.
