Directions to WMBR
As of March 15, 2020, we are no longer broadcasting from our studios in the Walker Memorial Building. The building has been locked by MIT, and the interior is monitored by by video cameras.
Please note that this is not our mailing address, for information on how to contact WMBR, please look here!
We are at the corner of Memorial Drive and Ames Street.
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 PM.
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
