Where can I store my belongings while I'm attending an event or class?
Participants are welcome to store their belongings in the room they're in for a program. There are also public lockers available across from the first-floor bathrooms.
How do I get there using public transit?
The building is 0.4 miles away from the Kendall MIT stop where you can catch the red line and 64, 68, 85, CT2, 64, 68, and 85 buses. The building is 0.5 miles away from the Lechmere stop where you can catch the green line and 69, 80, 87, and 88 buses. You can find walking directions to The Foundry here.
What is the parking situation like?
We don't have designated parking, so your best bet would be finding public parking on the neighboring streets (Third St, Rogers St, Fifth Street). There are also a number of parking garages in the area if you need a longer term solution. We have a loading area if you need to pick up or drop off large objects, but you'll need to find parking after dropping off. See parking options here.
How can I get The Foundry to promote my public event?
When you reserve a room, we will send you a link to a form that asks for a list of details about your event. This information will allow us to publicize your event on our events page, social media, and weekly events e-newsletter.
Please note: If you do not submit your event by 10 am the Friday before your event, your event will not be included in next week's e-newsletter and social post. It will still be included on our website.
Does the Foundry have COVID-19 Policies?
All Foundry employees will be required to be vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus. Mask use is encouraged within the indoor spaces of The Foundry to help protect our most vulnerable community members. Mask use will be encouraged for all visitors to the Foundry building, and masks will be on hand for those who need one. In the event of a surge in cases for Covid-19 or any other public health crisis disease, The Foundry will comply with and follow local City of Cambridge guidelines and regulations.
