Getting to Campus

Whenever possible, we encourage visitors to take public transportation to campus as parking in the area is extremely limited. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) services greater Boston as well as most of eastern Massachusetts by commuter rail, rapid transit, commuter boat, buses, and light rail. The MBTA provides service directly to the door of the College by both bus and the Green E Line.

  • Green Line: Travel on the "E" train and exit at Longwood Medical Area Station (located outside of MassArt's Design and Media Center).
  • Orange Line: Travel on any orange line train to Ruggles Station. The college is a five-minute walk from the station. Alternatively, board the CT2 bus bound for Kendall Square and exit at Huntington and Longwood Avenues.
  • Bus: The following bus routes include stops at or near the college: #39, CT2, #65, #8, #47, #66.
  • Commuter Rail: The closest stop via commuter rail is Ruggles Station, though the commuter rail provides access to all subway lines. From Ruggles, take the CT2 bus bound for Kendall Square. Exit at Huntington and Longwood Avenues.
