The Woodstock 50 Symposium will take place from Friday, April 5 through Sunday, April 7 at Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee, located in the heart of downtown Boston. All symposium sessions and events will take place in 921 Boylston Street, which is a fully accessible building.
There are several housing options in the immediate vicinity of the symposium location. The Oasis Guest House is likely the most affordable option. Located at 22 Edgerly Road, it's a three-block walk from the symposium. The Sheraton Boston and Hilton Boston Back Bay, located at 39 and 40 Dalton Street, respectively, are each two blocks from the symposium.
In addition, the closest Green Line MBTA, or T, subway stop is only three blocks from the symposium at 100 Massachusetts Avenue. This branch of the T will connect you to more housing options throughout the city.
The symposium will offer periodic options for snacks and refreshments, the details of which can be found within the schedule. We also welcome all attendees to join us for lunch in the Loft on Saturday, April 6 from 11:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. This event is free, but due to limited seating, we require prior registration to attend.
Additionally, a variety of dining options can be found in the immediate vicinity of the symposium. Please see our list of dining options for more detailed information.
All major airlines serve the Boston metropolitan area at Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS).
By Bus or Train
Berklee's campus is located a few blocks from Back Bay Station, one of the city's largest transportation hubs. It serves the rapid transit and commuter rail lines, local and regional bus lines, and national Amtrak and Acela train lines.
Other major transportation hubs in Boston, including North Station and South Station, also offer connections to local and national modes of transport. Berklee can be reached from these locations easily by use of the MBTA rapid transit rail line system.
The MBTA (Boston Public Transportation)
Known colloquially as the T, Boston’s rapid transit train and subway system serves the Greater Boston area via a series of branch lines called the Blue, Orange, Red, Silver, and Green lines, the last of which stops closest to Berklee (at the Hynes Convention Center stop, with entrances at 100 Massachusetts Avenue and 360 Newbury Street). Each ride on the T costs $2.75, no matter the direction or length of your journey (note that if you buy a CharlieCard, the price is discounted by $0.50).
It is expensive to park for any length of time near campus. If you must park, the Haviland Street Garage at 7 Haviland Street is the most reasonable option: its weekday maximum rate is $23, and its weekend maximum rate is $15. We recommend researching various parking locations and their rates before you plan to arrive in the area in order to find the best option for your needs.
Wireless access is available in the 921 Boylston Street building via the “Berklee-Guest” network option.
