Directions to Tufts CTRC

  • The parking garage is directly across the street from the main Tufts Medical Center building at 800 Washington Street. You can also enter the garage from 274 Tremont Street, next to the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre (formerly the Wang Center). If you choose to park in the garage, we do validate a percentage of your parking costs, but you will be responsible for the remaining cost when exiting.
  • Once you are parked, take the "C" elevators to the ground floor.
  • Once out of the elevator, if you turn right you will see the doors leading out.
  • Take another right and you will see a set of stairs. The stairs will lead you to Washington St. and across the street is the main entrance of Tufts Medical Center (800 Washington St).
  • You can go inside the main entrance where you will tell the security guards you have an appointment at the Research Center.
  • Once you're inside the Atrium, take the main elevators (across from the help desk) to the 6th floor.
  • When you get off the elevators on the 6th floor, you will turn right and go just a short distance down the hallway where there is a door on the right side with a sign for the CTRC. Enter that door and come to the front desk.
