Directions and Parking

For the 2015-2016 Season:

A large portion of the Winsor School is currently under construction.  Therefore, the field entrance/field of play and parking accommodations have changed. 

The soccer, field hockey and lacrosse field is now located at 359 Brookline Avenue, across from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  The entrance for all field sport spectators will be on Nessel Way (next to Bruegger's Bagels), which will serve as the only entrance to the field. 

Parents/Spectators: For Field Sports, parents/spectators may park in the Winsor School Parking Lot (103 Pilgrim Road) or the Nessel Way lot. The Nessel Way lot will open 1 hour prior to game time and will close 30 minutes after the conclusion of the game. In the event the lot is full, please park at the MASCO Garage, located at 375 Longwood Avenue, which is a short walk to the field. For non-field sports, please park in the Winsor School Parking lot (103 Pilgrim Road) or at the MASCO Garage, located at 375 Longwood Avenue. 

For the 2015-2016 season, Simmons Tennis will play the majority of their matches at Harvard University and MIT. Please click here for directions to Harvard's facilities and here for directions to MIT.

The Holmes Sports Center is located on the Simmons College Residence Campus at 331 Brookline Avenue in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston. Three of Simmons’ athletic teams (field hockey soccer and lacrosse) play their home contests at the Winsor School Athletic Complex, located at 54 Pilgrim Road, directly adjacent to the Sports Center. 

Parking is limited and at your own risk. Visitors and spectators are encouraged to park at the MASCO Garage, located at 375 Longwood Avenue, a short walk from both locations.

Riverside Boat Club has been home to the Simmons Crew program since 1999. Located on the Cambridge bank of the Charles River on Memorial Drive, Riverside is home to Simmons' fleet of rowing shells, shell trailer and coaching launches. Click here to visit the RBC Website
