Fall 2017 Symposium: Getting There

Symposium Location:

The symposium will take place in the Redfield Auditorium in Woods Hole, MA — see map and picture below.


There are stairs leading to the main door, so attendees with mobility restrictions can use a door on the side that has a ramp. Please let us know if you would like assistance entering the building.


Parking near Redfield will be very limited. We encourage people to carpool and reduce the number of cars as much as possible. If you are familiar with WHOI or work in Woods Hole, we request that you park at Clark and take the shuttle or bike/walk directly to Redfield. This will allow unfamiliar visitors to take advantage of parking in the village.

If you are driving, these links will be very helpful:

Village parking map: Map shows 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice parking locations in the Woods Hole village.

Parking permit:  Please print a copy of the permit and place it on your dashboard. We will have a couple backup copies in case you forget, but please try to bring your own.


This WHOI website has a long list of local hotels that might be helpful for SWMS attendees. Many hotels in the area have a WHOI rate that is available if you mention that you are participating in a meeting at WHOI, but we do not have a SWMS-specific hotel or room block.
