By Public transport

W3C is two blocks from the Kendall Square "T" (subway) station on the Red Line. When you come to the surface, walk through the lobby of the Marriott Hotel to Broadway. Cross Broadway and walk to the left one block. When you have crossed the bike path you will be at 105 Broadway. The building entrance is further down the street at the Biogen sign. Enter and take elevator to 7th floor.

Driving from Logan Airport

From Logan Airport, go through the Sumner Tunnel. At the Boston end of the tunnel, follow the signs to Storrow Drive. You will re-enter an underground roadway. Once on Storrow Drive, the exit for Cambridge is the first LEFT LANE EXIT up a ramp. Once on the ramp, get in the right lane. At the end of the overpass there is a set of lights, take a right onto the Longfellow Bridge.

Go over the bridge, crossing the Charles River, and stay in the left lane. Pass the Marriott Hotel on your left. Immediately next to the Marriott is the "Green Garage" public parking. If you miss that, continue down Broadway and take the first left turn onto Ames St. Go 100 meters and follow signs the public parking garage ("Yellow Garage") on your right at Ames Place. When you exit the garage on foot you can cross through the small green park (Danny Lewin Park) back to Broadway. Take the crosswalk across Broadway and turn right. 105 Broadway is the next building on your left at the Biogen sign; enter and take elevator to 7th floor. If you parked in the Green Garage, exit on the Broadway side, cross Broadway, walk to the left and when you have crossed the bike path you will be at 105 Broadway.

*Please Note: When leaving Logan Airport, it is possible that the left lane leading to the Sumner Tunnel will be blocked. Traffic will be forced to go north. Don't panic! Get off at the first exit and follow traffic under the highway and get back on to highway going south to the Sumner Tunnel.

Driving from the Mass. Pike (Interstate 90)

Coming from the West, proceed through the Exit 15 tolls towards Boston. Look for signs marked Cambridge/Allston/Brighton. Take Exit 18 which is a left lane exit with a toll booth. The toll is $1. From the toll booth take the right lane down the ramp. At the end of the ramp is a very congested intersection. There are two sets of lights. The first set is at the bottom of the ramp. The second is at the intersection before the bridge (these two lights are about 50 feet apart). It is important to stay to the right, but not too far right or you will be forced to turn right on to Soldiers Field Road/Storrow Drive. So try to use the center lane once off the ramp. Your objective is to cross the bridge in front of you. Once on the bridge stay to the center. Proceed straight onto River Street and go about 0.6 miles to Massachusetts Avenue, at Central Square. Turn right onto Mass. Ave. Go about 0.2 miles to Main Street, which will be a shallow left turn. Proceed about 0.5 miles to the intersection of Vassar Street (on your right) and Galileo Gallilei Way (on your left). Turn left onto Gallileo Gallilei Way then take the next right onto Ames Place following the signs to public parking in the "Yellow Garage". When you exit the garage on foot you can cross through the small green park (Danny Lewin Park) back to Broadway. Take the crosswalk across Broadway and turn right. 105 Broadway is the next building on your left at the Biogen sign; enter and take elevator to 7th floor.
