Directions to Boston University Law Library from the Convention Center Area.
Via public transportation:
Exit the convention center through the front door on Boylston Street. Take a left and walk 2 blocks to Massachusetts Ave. Take a right on Massachusetts Ave. and walk 1 block to the Hynes train station, on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Newbury Street. Follow signs to the outbound platform and take a B (Boston College) train. Get out at the BU Central stop (4th stop).
Cross the street, walking toward the Marsh Chapel, which is directly across the street from the train station. Go under the arches to the left of the chapel. The Law School Auditorium is immediately to your left. Go around the auditorium building and you will see 765 Commonwealth Avenue, the law school tower. The library is on the 2nd floor of the Law Tower.
Walking, driving and public transportation information from convention center:
BUSL is about 1.75 miles from the convention center, which is not impossible to walk but I would not recommend it during the summer. Parking is next to impossible around the law school, so we recommend public transportation or a taxi from the convention center. See above for directions via public transportation.
