Most in-person BOLLI events, courses and meetings take place at 60 Turner Street, Waltham.

BOLLI members park along Turner Street in close proximity to the building and across the street from 60 Turner Street in the large parking lot. Please note: This large parking lot is not owned by Brandeis. While no difficulties have been reported by BOLLI members to date, Brandeis does not assume liability or risk for this parking area.

Parking in the spaces in the driveway or rear of 60 Turner Street is strictly prohibited and may result in ticketing. Regarding this policy, there is an exemption for handicap placard holders only:

  • There are four handicap spots in the small lot behind 60 Turner Street, immediately accessible from the 60 Turner Street driveway. Only BOLLI members with handicap placards may park in these four spots. Be sure to display your placard prominently.
  • BOLLI members with handicap placards may not park in any other spots in the lot directly behind 60 Turner Street, as these are dedicated for tenants of the building.

If you ever have difficulty finding parking in the immediate vicinity of Turner Street, you may park at the Brandeis/Roberts lot, across from the Epstein building.
