DIRECTIONS to Brandeis University, Shapiro Campus Center:

MAP

From 404 Wyman Street - Get on I-95 S from Wyman Street and Winter Street - Take exit 26 to merge onto US-20 W toward Weston/Waltham - Slight left to merge onto US-20 E toward Waltham/Boston - Slight right onto Vernon St - Turn right onto South Street

From Boston - Get on the 1-90 W - Take I-90 W to MA-30 W in Weston. Take exit 15 from I-90 W - Keep right until you take exit 24 and follow signs for Wayland - Follow River Road until you hit South Street

For both - Once on South Street, and once you come to the Brandeis campus on your left after the railroad tracks, you are going to come over a hill and see a lawn in the middle of the road. -Take a left before you hit the lawn onto Old Street (you might not see the sign for Old Street). - You should be at a fork in the road with the security office in front of you. - Take the sharpest left turn imaginable and drive on that road until you see a big lawn and a rusty green building on your right. That is the SCC, AKA your destination. - Keep driving down that road until you see a parking lot, then you can walk back up the hill to the SCC.
