Travel:

From the airport:

The Boston subway system, known as the “T”, connects the airport and Boston University campus. Public transportation directions to the the Kenmore station, which is next to the Hotels and a 10 minute walk to the conference, is linked below: https://maps.app.goo.gl/Kfh39cxT3fCxS2zD6
If necessary, Uber and Lyft connections are also available from the airport.

 

Accommodations:

Hotels can be very pricey in Boston, and Cambridge. Here is a link of nearby hotels. BU is T accessible and so hotels in the broad Boston area can be accessible. A limited number of hotel rooms are available at Residence Inn Boston Back Bay / Fenway with the Boston University Corporate rate using this link (link seems to work better on firefox than safari).
