how to contact WMBR, please look here!
We are at the corner of Memorial Drive and Ames Street next to the MIT
East Campus tennis courts. We are directly opposite the MIT Sailing Pavilion.
As parking is limited and regulations are aggressively enforced, our
guests are strongly encouraged to use public transportation to visit
WMBR during the daytime and during snow. In the evenings parking
opens up, and one can usually find a spot very close to us by 6 or 7
Once you've found the building, come right on in and go to the
basement. Our doors are clearly marked, and the basement isn't too
large so don't worry about getting lost inside. Please be warned
that, after you ring the doorbell, you might have to wait a few
minutes, since everyone inside may be on the air or involved in
Subway Take the Red Line to Kendall/MIT Station which is a short
walk from WMBR. Walk south down Carleton St. (away from the Marriott
hotel) until you get to the end of the street, then turn right onto
Amherst St. When you get to the end of Amherst you will be able to
see the tennis courts that are right next to the Walker Memorial Bldg.
There are entrances on both the river side of the building and the
side facing away from the river.
Bus: There is a regular MBTA bus (#1) service along

campus map as well as an information/reception office that is open
during working hours.
