Student Options (Wellesley ID Required)

Wellesley students have more regular and reliable access to resources and entertainment in the Greater Boston area than any other suburban campus. That's thanks to the College's own transportation and Boston's public transit system.  In addition to the above resources, Wellesley students can use the following.

The MIT Exchange and Senate buses run hourly on weekdays and even more frequently on weekends to locations in Cambridge and downtown Boston. The Wellesley-Olin-Babson shuttle and Natick Movie-Mall shuttle, which take you to other schools and attractions in the area, also pick up a minute's walk from the residence halls.
