Here will be the best ways to get to the Fox Point Dock:

Public Transportation to Campus

Weekdays

Take the MBTA Red Line to the JFK/UMass station; use the free shuttle bus to get dropped off at one of two locations:

  1. Clark Athletic Center (#2 on the map): Take the Route 2 Shuttle to the Clark Athletic Center circle. Go up the stairs to the plaza level and walk across and into the Integrated Sciences Complex (ISC) (#6 on the map), go down one level, exit the building at the ground level front doors, and follow the yellow arrow on the map.
  2. Campus Center (#1 on the map): Take the Route 1 or Route 3 Shuttle to the Campus Center. From that drop-off walk up the stairs to the plaza level of campus, walk across the plaza and into the Integrated Sciences Complex (ISC) (#6 on the map), go down one level, exit the building at the ground level front doors, and follow the yellow arrow on the map.

Weekends

Take the MBTA Red Line to the JFK/UMass station; use the free shuttle bus to get dropped off at the Campus Center (#1 on the map). From that drop-off walk up the stairs to the plaza level of campus, walk across the plaza and toward Wheatley Hall on your left. Follow signs ‘TO FOX POINT DOCK’ on the building around to the left, go down stairwell #5 two levels and exit the building at the ground level; boat docks will be ahead of you across the street.

Driving to Campus

Weekdays

If coming to campus before 9 a.m., drive and park in the Campus Center Garage (#1 on the map) or Lot D (#17 on the map). After the Campus Center Garage and Lot D are full, parking shifts to the UMass Boston Bayside Lot at 200 Mt. Vernon St. This lot provides a free shuttle bus, #3, to/from the Clark Athletic and Campus centers.

Weekends

Drive and park in the Campus Center Garage (#1 on the map) or Lot D (#17 on the map). Either walk to the Clark Athletic Center and take a Route 2 shuttle (the only shuttle that operates on the weekends) from there, or follow the Walking to Fox Point Dock directions below. 

Walking to Fox Point Dock

The red lines on the map are pedestrian/bike paths; look for the FOX POINT PAVILION BOAT DOCK on your map. Take any nearby pathway–each will lead to the HarborWalk when heading south. The docks are about a 5-10 minute walk along the HarborWalk. Watch for signage along the way. The nearest shuttle bus stop is located by Campus Center Admissions (#1). Plan on a 10-minute walk from the shuttle bus stop (yellow circle on your map). The nearest MBTA stop is marked with a ‘T’ symbol located between McCormack Hall (#6) and Wheatley Hall (#13). On-campus parking lots are the Camps Center Garage (#1) and Lot D (#18). Walking directly from the JFK/UMass T station down Morrissey Blvd. takes about 25 minutes.

Drop-off for Fox Point Dock

A drop-off area is indicated by the blue ‘anchor’ symbol on the map. From here you can walk down a couple of nearby pathways, each leading to the HarborWalk.
