Directions & Parking
Lesley University (Prelims)
GPS Address: 1815 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140
Take the T (subway) to Porter Square, one stop further outbound from Harvard Square. As you exit the T station, turn left and walk along Massachusetts Avenue. Walk ½ block to the entrance to Lesley University - University Hall; there’s a mini shopping mall on the first floor.
Elevator: only one (1) elevator is available at Lesley University (near security desk on main floor), and it can get overwhelmed, but there is a large staircase and directional signs on the second level for accessing the 3rd and 4th floors.
Parking is available behind Univ. Hall, off Roseland Ave. @$20/day.
