Directions to WMBR

As of January 2024, some of our radio shows are being broadcast live from our studios, but many of our shows are still pre-recorded. During those times, no one will be available to answer our front door. Please contact us by email to ensure that someone is at the station to meet you.
Walker Memorial Bldg.
We are located at:
142 Memorial Drive, Room 50-030
Cambridge, MA 02139

We are in the basement of the
Walker Memorial Building
(M.I.T. Building 50).

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.

WMBR Front Door 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 time-critical production.

By Public Transportation

Subway Take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT station which is a short walk from WMBR. Walk west on Main Street, then turn left on Ames St. Walk south on Ames St. until you reach Memorial Drive, then right and The Walker Memorial Building will be right in front of you.

Bus: There is a regular MBTA bus (#1) service along Massachusetts Avenue to MIT's main entrance at 77 Massachusetts Avenue. If you arrive there and the weather is nice, the easiest way to get to the station is to walk south one block towards the Charles River, turn left onto Memorial drive, and walk to the Walker Memorial building. Otherwise, go into the main MIT lobby where there is a campus map as well as an information/reception office that is open during working hours.

By Car
