Goddard Chapel – Directions and Parking
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION: Take the Red Line T to Davis Square. During term there is a white bus called the Joey (Joseph’s Transportation) that goes from the Davis Square T station to the Tufts Campus Center (Schedules are available here: http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/adminsvc/the-joey-medfordsomerville-campus-shuttle). Goddard Chapel is at the top of the hill across from the Campus Center, next to Ballou Hall.
DRIVING AND PARKING: We recommend driving to and parking in Tufts’ Dowling Hall Garage, located at 419 Boston Avenue. This garage is built up the hillside that Tufts’ Medford/Somerville campus is on, so if you park in the garage and take the elevator to the 7th floor, you will be at the top of the hill. Walk straight out of the building over the bridge to the Green and Goddard Chapel will be straight ahead.
For weddings and evening or weekend events, parking is available behind West, Bendetson, Packard, and East Halls, which are located on the opposite side of the Green from Goddard Chapel, and on Professors Row which runs at the base of the hill beneath Goddard Chapel.
Visitors may pay for their parking sessions via the Sentry webportal, or payment kiosks.
From Route 93: If heading north, take Exit 31 (Mystic Valley Parkway). Follow the exit ramp to Medford Square. At the blinking light at the end of the ramp, turn left onto Main Street. Follow Main Street 3/10 of a mile to George Street. Turn right on George Street and then left on College Avenue. Follow College Avenue to Professors Row (the first right after the Memorial Steps), then take a right on Packard Avenue to the top of the hill. Goddard Chapel will be on the Green to your right. See parking details above.
If heading south, take Exit 32 for Medford Square. Follow the signs to Medford Square, then bear left onto Main Street and follow directions as above. See parking details above.
From Routes 2 and 16: Once on Route 16, proceed east through two full traffic lights. Take the next right, a sharp turn onto Powderhouse Boulevard. Proceed to Packard Avenue, the third left from which leads onto the campus. Proceed to the top of Packard Avenue, and Goddard Chapel will be on the Green to your right.
