The University of Massachusetts Boston is located in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The campus is accessible via public transportation from Logan International Airport and South Station Train Terminal.

If you arrive at South Station, take the Red Line to the JFK/UMass stop. If you arrive from Boston Logan, you can take the (free) Silver Line to South Station, followed by the Red Line to the JFK/UMass stop.

A free shuttle (Route 1) connects JFK/UMass Station and Bayside Inbound with the UMass Boston Campus Center. See Shuttle Bus Information and live shuttle tracker.

All World Congress sessions take place at University Hall, right next to the Campus Center.
