Venue: The Curry Student Center Ballroom, Northeastern University

The Ballroom is located on the 2nd floor of the Curry Student Center at Northeastern University. The Student Center is located in the center of Northeastern's campus; a map is available at http://www.northeastern.edu/campusmap/printable/campusmap.pdf and the student center is building 50 (CSC).

Transportation

Northeastern is well-connected to Boston's public transportation system (the T). Options for getting to campus include:

Orange Line: The Orange Line stop Ruggles is in the middle of campus; it is a 3 minute walk from the stop to the Student Center.

Green Line 'E': The Green Line 'E' Branch stop Northeastern is also on-campus and is a short walk to campus. Do note that the Green Line splits into three other branches ('B', 'C', and 'D', none of which stop near Northeastern).

Bus: Ruggles is also a hub for T busses, and a number of lines stop at Ruggles or near campus.

Commuter Rail: Many commuter rail trains stop at Ruggles as well.

Parking

Northeastern offers parking to visitors in the Renaissance Garage, located at 835 Columbus Avenue (adjacent to the Ruggles T stop). The rate for parking is $20 for up to 12 hours ($28 for more than 12 hours). A map of the parking garage location is available at http://www.northeastern.edu/parking/images/NU_ParkingLotMap.pdf.

Hotels

Banquet

The banquet will be held at:

The Elephant Walk, Boston
900 Beacon St
Boston, MA 02215
+1 (617) 247-1500

(Note that there are two branches of the Elephant Walk in the city; this is the one that's close to NEU)

The banquet starts at 7:00 pm. To get to the restaurant, there are two options:

1. Walk (~25 min): If the weather is nice, it's a nice stroll through the Fens. Directions are given on Google Maps below:



(A is the Curry Student Center [location of the conference], B is the Elephant Walk).

2. Take the T (~30 min): The easiest way to do this is to walk up to the Northeastern Green Line E stop and take it Inbound (towards Lechemere). Take it until Arlington, and then get out, change directions, and take the Green Line D Outbound (towards Riverside) to the Fenway stop:



Important note: You may be tempted to change from the E line to the D line at Copley. You can do this, but you'll have to exit the station (and have to pay a second fare). Stay on until Arlington if you don't want to pay twice.
