Transit: We recommend taking the Red Line to JFK/UMass Station. From 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., a free shuttle bus takes you to and from the Campus Center. The trip normally takes 10 minutes.

Taxi/Uber/Lyft: Usually GPS would route you to UMass Boston’s Integrated Science Building drop off/pick up location. Once arrived, you can ask for directions to Wheatley building or get on a catwalk (glass corridor) on 2nd floor and follow W letter directions to Wheatley building. If possible, you can instruct the driver to take you to the main entrance (facing Dorchester Bay) of the UMass Boston Campus Center.

Driving: There are several parking lots around the campus. We recommend the Bayside Lot (200 Mt. Vernon Street). Free shuttles run Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., to the Campus Center. The trip normally takes 10 minutes.

From the Campus Center, take the elevator from the Upper Level to Second Floor. Turn right, and walk the length of the building, then enter the catwalk. Walk straight ahead to Wheatley Hall. Take the elevator to the Third Floor. Turn left, and walk down the hallway until you reach a white-walled corridor with a glass door entrance to the Venture Development Center.
