For directions to Brandeis University: http://www.brandeis.edu/about/visiting/directions.html
You can also get to our campus by public-transportation. The MBTA Commuter rail line to Fitchburg/South-Acton stops at the bottom of our campus. For schedule info: http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/rail/lines/?route=FITCHBRG
Parking: Parking is allowed in the “Tower lot”. When you get to our campus, you will see a steep road going uphill, this is the loop road. Go uphill and go past the castle, until you get to the top of the campus.
You will have the Usdan Student Center and the Library on your left, and Kutz Hall and the Rabb Graduate Center (with steep steps) on your right.
You will then see a small parking lot on your Left for the Heller School, you are NOT allowed to park here.
But a little bit further, before you pass the Mandel Center and the road starts to go downhill again, you will see a big parking lot on your right. That is the Tower Lot.
If that parking lot is full, you have to go to the “T” (Theater) lot.
Get back on the loop-road and continue downhill.
Once you basically get to the bottom you will pass the Rose Art Museum (on your right) and then get to a Stop sign. Take a right and you will drive into the Parking Lot.
The meeting will be held in Rapaporte Treasure Hall, which is a meeting space inside the Goldfarb Library Building. You can find the location of this building on our interactive Campus map: http://www.brandeis.edu/about/visiting/map.html
From the Tower parking-lot, you walk back along loop-road, passed the Heller School parking lot.
Take the next walk-way on your right (going slightly down-hill) and you will have the Usdan Student Center on your left and the Goldfarb Library on your right.
Walk passed the side-entrance of the library, until you get to the front and main entrance.
There is a little plaza with a statue in front of it.
When you enter the building, take an immediate right and you will walk into Treasure Hall.
If you end up parking in T-lot, you will have to walk to the intersection with the Stop-sign, cross loop road and continue walking up-hill toward the green copper building (Shapiro Student Center).
The walkway will take you passed the Student Center, through a cherry-tree garden. You will see a statue of Louis Brandeis on your left.
Keep going up the hill until you are in front of the Goldfarb library. See the directions from Tower Lot to get to the right room.
