Maxwell Dworkin Laboratory
Maxwell Dworkin Laboratory, named after the mothers of the building’s donors (Microsoft Chairman William H. Gates III and Microsoft President Steven A. Ballmer, both members of the Class of 1977) is a contemporary structure, fully owned and operated by SEAS. Designed to house computer science and electrical engineering, the structure was completed in 1999. Often mistakenly called the Maxwell Dworkin Building, the word “Laboratory” is in recognition of the former Aiken Lab.

Take the Red Line to the Harvard Square T stop. After exiting go down or up the ramp
and up the escalator. As you leave the station turn around and cross over. You will be on Mass Ave facing north, with a black iron fence on your right. Follow the sidewalk until you come to
Johnston Gate, walk through Johnston Gate and upon entering the yard
follow the walkway to your left. As you exit the yard there will be construction. Go straight

and Kirkland Streets. Take a left onto Oxford Street. The meeting is in 33 Oxford Street which
is the 4th building on the left.
From Logan Airport
Welcome to Boston! From outside the terminal, take a free shuttle bus marked "subway" (number 22 or 33) to the Airport station on the Blue Line. Take the Blue Line inbound to Government Center, change to any Green Line inbound/westbound train upstairs for one stop to Park Street, then change to the Red Line downstairs for the train to Alewife via Harvard. Get off at Harvard. Continue with the directions "by subway". The travel time on the subway should be 40-60 minutes.
You could also take a taxi from the terminal directly to Maxwell Dworkin, which typically costs about $30.
