Travel by Public Transportation
1. You could take the MBTA's "Green Line" (B train). It ends at the Boston College T stop on Commonwealth Avenue. It will be the last stop, no more passengers after this. Once you get off the train, you will see the St. Ignatius Church directly across the street. The church is on the corner of Fr. Herilihy Drive and Commonwealth Avenue. Stay on Commonwealth Avenue and walk uphill. The T stop where you were should now be on your right as you walk uphill. You will pass the Boston College Career Center and some dormitories on your left. The BC shuttle stop is at the Main Gate of the Chestnut Hill Campus. Wait there until the Newton Campus shuttle bus comes along; do not take the shuttle that says "Commonwealth Avenue". Exit the bus at the Newton Campus stop directly in front of Stuart House, the Law School's main administrative building.
2. You could take a taxi. First, you would take the MBTA's "Green Line" (B Train). **IMPORTANT** If you decide to take the B line, give yourself extra time. This particular line has many stops along the way. When you get off the B train at the Boston College T stop, you should see taxis parked on the same side of the street, near the train stop. The cost should be between $9.00 and $10.00. Ask the driver to bring you to the Boston College Law School/Newton Campus. The taxi drivers usually drop their passegers off at Stuart House.
3. You could also take the MBTA's "Green Line" (D train) to the Newton Centre stop and walk to the Law School. We are located at 885 Centre Street in Stuart House, Room M302, Newton Campus. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk. Cross the street and you will be on Herrick Road. Keep going and you will see a busy intersection. You will see the First Baptist Church in Newton on one corner and Liberty Travel on the other. Press any button for the walk signal so that you can quickly cross over to Centre Street. Make a right on Centre Street. Here are a few landmarks: On your left will be a Starbucks, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, the CVS Pharmacy, the Tango Mango Restaurant, the Newton Centre Playground, The Greek Evangelical Church, the Trinity Episcopal Church. On your right will be a Brookline Bank, a Citizens Bank, a Common area with benches and the Dellaria Day Spa. You will come to the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Centre Street. Continue on Centre Street, through the residential area. You will see a stone wall and the entrance to the Law School on the left.
