To enter:
There are two entrances: one from Massachusetts Avenue or from the accessible rear parking lot entrance. You can park in the free ?Visitor/Guest? parking spots that say ?30 minutes? but are actually ok for up to 2 hours. There are several parallel spaces to your right as drive in. The others are directly on the other side of these which are nose in. I have been assured that all of these ?30 minute? spaces are safe to park in. There may be times when those spaces are all taken, so please, if you drive, be prepared to park at a meter if necessary. The cost is 25 cents for 15 minutes up to 2 hours. After 6 pm no charge for meters so at night Mass Ave might be a better choice because it is better lit than the back.

There are both stairs and an elevator, and there are rest rooms on each floor of the building. If you enter the building from the rear parking lot walk towards the front. The elevator will be on your right and the stairs are right after that. If you take the stairs to the third floor the office, #312, is on the left as you exit the stairs. The elevator is down the hallway from the stairs. The waiting area is just outside the door where we have placed some chairs and the Brita water dispenser.
