2016 Transportation & Accommodation

BU Center for Career Development is located in the Yawkey Center for Student Services at 100 Bay State Road, Boston, MA 02215. We have included the best ways to get to our location, as well as a few area hotels.

Parking: The BU-owned Kenmore Lot (cash only) is located directly next to the Yawkey Center, at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Deerfield Street. Rates are $3.00 per half hour or $12.00 for the day. Street parking is limited, and meters are restricted to two hours.

Boston Taxi Services: If you’re going to or from the airport or to the suburbs, ask about flat rates. Bridge and tunnel tolls are paid by the passenger. Service within the greater Boston area is rated by cab meter. Service outside this area is determined by the Boston Police Department’s flat rate handbook. A few local tax services we recommend include: Boston Cab (617-536-3200) and Metro Cab (617-782-5500).

Massachusetts Bay Transit System (MBTA): The least expensive way to get around Boston is by the T. The T is color-coded by line: red, blue, orange, and green. The green B line train passes directly through the Boston University Charles River campus, continuing from Kenmore Square up along Commonwealth Avenue on the street level. To get to the Center for Career Development, take a green line train outbound toward Boston College (B line), Cleveland Circle (C line), or Riverside (D line) and get off at the Kenmore stop. Be sure NOT to take an E line train toward Heath Street. After getting off at Kenmore, exit toward the right after the turnstile. At the top of the stairs, take a left and walk down Beacon Street. You will walk past the BU Barnes & Noble bookstore. Take a right on Deerfield Street.
