Directions to Schwartz Hall
Schwartz Hall is located inside the campus of Brandeis and there are not signs that make it easy to find, so we wanted to provide directions to help you find the workshop.
Enter Brandeis at 415 South Street in Waltham. As you enter, make a right turn and follow Loop Road and the signs for Upper Campus and the Mandel Center for Humanities. Just after you pass the Rabb Graduate Center on your right, you will see a small parking lot on your left across from the Mandel Center for the Humanities. Park in that small parking lot. From the parking lot, walk back down the road you drove up, taking the first path on your right. The path will flow between the Library on your right and the Usdan Student Center on your left. The Schwartz building is directly behind the Usdan Student Center. If there are students around, you can always ask one of them to point you towards Schwartz Hall.
There is also a small parking lot just past the Mandel Center. If for some reason, you are unable to park in the small parking lot across from Mandel Center (or the parking lot just past Mandel), you can continue to follow the Loop Road all the way around the campus back down to the lower campus. You can park in the Theater Parking lot behind the Spingold Theater Center. Walk back out the parking lot and cross Loop Road to follow the path up through the center of campus. You will pass the Shapiro Campus Center on your left and the Science Center buildings on your right. At the top of the hill, you will pass the library on your left and then Schwartz Hall will be on your right across from the Usdan Student Center. Note: This is a much longer walk than the walk from the small parking lot across from Mandel Center – but it is an interesting way to see more of Brandeis University!
