air travel

Boston College is located at the western edge of the City of Boston in the suburban Chestnut Hill neighborhood. Campus is located approximately 9 miles by car from the city center, and about 12 miles from Logan International Airport, the main airport serving Boston.

Additional area airports include Manchester–Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire (52.5 miles) and T.F. Green airport in Providence, Rhode Island (56 miles).

Rail Travel

Boston is located on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, and is therefore accessible by trains that proceed northward through Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York City. It is also accessible from the west via the Lake Shore Limited, which originates in Chicago and passes through Albany and New York City.

Directions and parking

Please refer to the Boston College website for information on getting to campus by car or public transportation and parking. For parking, we recommend the Commonwealth Avenue Garage (Google Maps location) for its proximity to the Corcoran Commons building, where most conference sessions will be held.

For precise walking or rideshare directions to Corcoran Commons, enter “Corcoran Commons Chestnut Hill” in a mapping service (note: this is more effective than entering simply “Boston College” or the main campus address, 140 Commonwealth Avenue, Chestnut Hill, MA).
