The roadway by the Fox Point Dock is closed for construction, and the remainder of the open university roads is now two-way traffic. It is expected that the university road near the dock will reopen in late spring 2017. 

Here are the best ways to get to the Fox Point Dock:

Public Transportation to Campus

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 Shuttle 2 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 Shuttles 1 or 2 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.

Driving to Campus

If coming to campus before 8 a.m., drive and park in either Lot B (#16 on the map) or Lot D (#17 on the map). After Lots B and D are full, parking shifts to the UMass Boston Bayside Lot on Mt. Vernon St. This lot provides a free shuttle bus, #3, to/from the Clark Athletic and Campus centers.

Walking to Fox Point Dock

The yellow lines on the map direct you to the Fox Point Dock. Watch for signage along the way. Plan on a 10-to-15 minute walk from the shuttle stops or on campus lots. 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, indicated by an anchor symbol on the map, is available.

The red area on the map is completely OFF-LIMITS for your safety.
