How to get to the SOCH

Walking Directions: Located on the corner of Garden and Shepard Streets, the SOCH is just a 15 minute walk from Harvard Square.  Just follow Garden St. past the Sheraton Commander hotel.  The main entrance is located on the right side of the building facing the Radcliffe Quadrangle.

Parking Information: Parking is not available for student organizations.  Lots surrounding the SOCH are reserved for Harvard affiliates with designated parking passes.  Similarly, parking on streets adjacent to the SOCH is for City of Cambridge residents only. Violators will be subject to ticketing and towing.  Visitors may purchase a daily permit online.  Under no circumstances may students park on the Quad Access Road immediately adjacent to the SOCH since this is the primary egress for Harvard Transportation shuttles.

Shuttle Service: Harvard University Shuttle Services run shuttles from Harvard Yard (leaving from Boylston Gate on Massachusetts Avenue). The SOCH is located at the Quad stop.

How to get to Harvard Square

By Car: From I90-Massachusetts Turnpike: Take the Cambridge/Allston exit. Bear right, go straight, cross the River Street Bridge, and immediately make a left turn onto Memorial Drive. At the third light, turn right onto JFK Street. Drive straight into Harvard Square. (Out of Town News, on your right, marks the center of Harvard Square.)

On-street parking is scarce in Cambridge, but there are several public parking lots and garages around the square.

By Subway: Harvard Yard is steps away from the Harvard Square stop on the Red Line of the MBTA (the “T”), Boston’s subway system.

By Bus: The #1 MBTA bus conveniently stops and departs from  Boylston Gate (directly in front of Boylston Hall). Refer to the MBTA website for the #1 schedule.
