IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

If you are driving or walking: please allow for extra time due to construction. Below are detailed instructions to ease your navigation around construction to the Samberg Conference Center at MIT which is located in the Chang Building of MIT Business School at 50 Memorial Drive, Cambridge.

 

Parking is available at the Kendall Center Green Garage located in the Marriott hotel at 50 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142. After parking, enter the hotel and exit on the site where you see the Red Line T stop, and then proceed to follow walking directions from T Stop.

 

Accessible by public transportation via the Kendall/MIT stop on the Red Line. Turn left (as if walking out of Marriott hotel) towards the Chipotle. When you see the fountain cross the street towards Fidelity, after the Bank of America take a right down the “pedestrian access” walkway through the construction area. Walk straight up the ramp and enter the Sophia Change building. You have arrived, proceed up to the 7th floor. Along the way you should see signs pointing to the Samberg Conference Center.

 

By taxi service, advise your driver to drop you off on Memorial Drive to avoid construction in Kendall Square. There will be a lane to pullover for drop off. The Samberg Center at 50 Memorial Drive is just before Wentworth Street.
