How to get to The Boston Conservatory from the airport?

We suggest you take a cab from the airport to The Boston Consevatory. There are cab stations outside the baggage claim area. Cab fare from Boston Logan International Airport averages $25-30. You can also take public transportation (The T) from the airport to the Conservatory. You take any train on the blue line to the Government Center stop. Once there, you will switch to the green line. You will take the A,B,C, or D train on the green line to the Hynes Convention Center stop. Once off the train you will exit to the outside and take a left. The first stoplight you come to (the cross streets Boylston and Massachusetts Avenue) you will cross Boylston Street, and then take a right onto Boylston. You will walk two blocks down Boylston and follow the sidewalk around to the left. You will then be in front of The Boston Conservatory buildings and will see the flags outside the dorm facilities. It takes approximately 45 minutes to get to The Boston Conservatory by public transportation.

Is there parking available?

There is no parking available for students on The Boston Conservatory campus. Both commuter and resident students are urged to utilize public transportation. There is limited meter parking. Please follow all signs as violators may be towed at their own expense. There are a few garages that can be used in the area but often have around $25 daily rates.

Conservatory ID & Security

How safe is Boston?

With all that Boston has to offer, it is sometimes easy to forget that Boston is a major city, and that vigilance and preparedness are crucial to maintaining one’s personal safety and the security of one’s property. While the members of The Boston Conservatory’s Department of Public Safety are here to maintain our institution as a safe, secure and comfortable place to live and learn, a truly safe environment may only be achieved with your active participation in the process.

What is security like at The Boston Conservatory?

A public safety officer is stationed in 8 The Fenway from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. Public safety officers also make regularly scheduled rounds throughout the campus.

Do I need a photo ID?

All participants arriving on campus for the Extension Programs will be required to have a Boston Conservatory photo ID. Once you arrive on campus, you will be sent to the Registrar’s office located in the main building (8 The Fenway) to get an ID that will allow access to the appropriate building(s)/dorm.

What if I am only on campus for one day?

If you are attending a one-day Extension Program you will be asked to sign in at the security desk (In 8 The Fenway) and need to be accompanied by someone with a valid ID for the Conservatory to the appropriate venue.
