Lewis Hall Lot Closure - Alternative Pick Up Locations:

For cabs, Ubers and others looking for a street address during Lewis Hall construction, one option is 1607 Mass Ave - the new building just across Everett Street. The address is clearly visible and there is a small overhang to stand during inclement weather.

An alternative location is 10 Everett Street - the WCC Clinical Wing entrance. Please keep in mind that the lobby may not always be open so there may be no place to get out of the weather. This location might be the best option for those heading towards Harvard Square or traveling south.

For regular drop off or pick up where the street address is not essential, drive in off of Oxford Street at the Maxwell Dworkin building. You can drive through the parking area past Hauser, along the far side of Holmes Field all the way around to Langdell south and Austin Hall.
