Directions to the Concert and Parking

Walking/ MBTA:

Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church is located at 1555 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, opposite the north end of the Cambridge Common, and is about a 7-8 minute walk from the Harvard Sq. Red Line exit. (Please use crossing lights!)

The church can be reached by the #77 bus, which runs about every 10-12 min at the time of our concert. The church is at the first stop (Jarvis St) as the bus exits the underground upper busway, Harvard Sq.

Coming from Arlington/N. Cambridge, get off at the last stop before the bus enters the tunnel (Waterhouse St.) and cross the street carefully. 


Harvard visitor parking will be available to our guests by on-line pre-purchase.  You may purchase parking starting Nov 24 or shortly thereafter.  It is recommended that you not purchase your parking in a last-minute rush as it takes a bit of time to work through the Harvard website. The cost is $7 for the day.

Click the link above, then on "Click Here to Purchase A Permit Online." At the bottom right, choose Visitor. If you have not already done so, you will need to register. Choose as department, "Visitor to Campus" and enter "7700" as the department code. You will also have to choose a parking lot or garage.  We recommend the 52 Oxford Street garage (OXST) (an underground garage) which is accessible by taking a right off of Mass Ave onto Everett Street (first street north of the church), continuing through the lights and following the road to the attendant’s booth. Other available lots/garages close to Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church are: the Littauer Lot (LITT) and the lot at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) (both with limited spaces). Once the permit has been purchased you can print your permits by logging into the site, clicking on My Account and then Account History.

Permits must be purchased prior to arrival at the parking facility, and must be displayed at all times when parked on campus. Payment may be made by credit card. Permits may not be purchased over the phone. For troubleshooting purchasing, see Harvard Parking's FAQs page, near the bottom of the page.

On-street parking meters are located north of the church on Mass. Ave., across from the church along the Cambridge Common, across the Common on Garden St., and behind the church on Oxford and Kirkland St.
