Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. It was founded a mere 16 years after the arrival of the Pilgrims at Plymouth. Seven presidents of the United States - John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Rutherford B. Hayes, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and George W. Bush (biz school, not undergrad) - were graduates of Harvard. It hosts many academic, cultural, and theatrical events throughout the year.
On-street parking is scarce in Cambridge. There are public parking lots and garages, and the Harvard University Parking Office, 29 Garden Street, sells day passes in University lots for $9 Mon-Fri and $5 Sat-Sun.
Most Harvard locations are within a few minutes walk from the center of Harvard Square, accessible via the Red Line. By car from the Mass Pike, get off at Cambridge (exit 18). Turn left immediately onto Soldiers Field Road (west). Take Harvard Square exit, bear right across Anderson Bridge, and drive straight into Harvard Square. For Byerly Hall, proceed through two lights - the first just before the Square (and Out of Town News), the second after passing through the Square. After the second light, get in the left-hand lane, bearing to the far left. Upon taking a sharp left turn at the next light, move directly to the right-most lane and follow it onto Garden Street.
