TRAVEL

Wentworth Institute of Technology is located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. It is walkable from the Museum of Fine Arts stop on the Green Line (E trains) and the Ruggles stop on the Orange Line. There are several inexpensive restaurants in the area.

Detailed driving and subway directions can be found on Wentworth Institute of Technology’s website.  In addition to flights into Logan Airport, there are Amtrak trains that run into North Station (Downeaster Line) and South Station (all other trains), and several bus lines (C&J, Greyhound, Peter Pan) that go into South Station. From North and South Stations, it is fastest to take the Orange Line to Ruggles.

PARKING

Simmons College has provided visitor’s vouchers for reduced-rate parking in their garage ($13.50 for the day). Simmons is only a few blocks from WIT. To receive the reduced rate, please be sure that you collect a yellow voucher from the organizers. The entrance to the parking garage is on Louis Pasteur Avenue. Visitors should park in levels P1-3 of the garage under the School of Management Garage. When you leave the garage at the end of the day, you will first insert the white ticket that you received upon entrance, then the yellow visitor’s voucher. You can then use your credit card or Visa/MC debit card to pay the balance.

We are working on accommodations for participants with mobility needs. We aim to make this conference accessible. If you have a disability, please do identify yourself when you register so we can make arrangements to meet your needs.
