***Please note the location has changed from One Biotech Building to the UMass Medical School campus, which is across the street at 55 Lake Ave NORTH. There is a parking garage at this address. There is a fee for parking: Under 2 hrs. is $3, 2-4 hrs is $5 and valet parking is $7.00. Unfortunately, we cannot get parking validated.

Detailed Directions to Lazare Auditorium:
First Floor – Lazare Auditorium (S1-607): From the Medical School main entrance, go straight through the lobby and past the Simulation Center; take your first right. The Lazare Auditorium is located down the hall on your left. *Please note that the Medical School Entrance is the middle of the three buildings that are shaped like a “U.” When I was there this past week a “Tobacco Free” sign was hanging by the main doors. You can look for this as a marker to the entrance (hopefully it will still be up then) and go through the doors and go straight.
