Events for BEAMSfest 2018 will occur on the campus of Brandeis University. Our address is 415 South St., Waltham, MA
The Brandeis campus is situated on a hill. Most of our events will take place in Brandeis’s music building, Slosberg Music Center, at the bottom of the hill (“Lower Campus”) across from the admissions building). We will also have concerts in the Berlin Chapel and the Shapiro Campus Center. Workshops take place in the Getz Media Lab, which is in the basement floor of the Goldfarb Library (which can be found at the top of the hill, “Upper Campus”). A campus map can be found at this link.
We encourage you to travel through the Fitchburg Line on MBTA commuter rail. The Brandeis/Roberts stop is at the base of the Brandeis campus and is only a 5 minute walk from the Slosberg Music Center, where most of our events will take place. The Fitchburg Line departs from North Station in Boston and Porter Station in Somerville. Timetables can be found at this link.
If you do drive, our campus is about 20-30 minutes away from Boston (30-45 in rush hour). Visitors may acquire guest parking passes at the guardhouse found at the main entrance to the university (off South Street) and should follow signs for parking in the Theater Lot.
We have a block discount arrangement with the Hilton Garden Inn in Waltham, which is a 13 minute drive from the Brandeis campus. The hotel also offers a shuttle to the Brandeis campus. You can access our discount by entering BEAMS in the group code section when making your reservation.
