Wheelchair Accessibility
The first floor of the Women's Center is wheelchair accessible. There is a wheelchair lift on the right hand side of the house. To gain entrance, push the buzzer/doorbell located at the side of the lift. A staffer will come to the entrance to engage the lift.
Unless you know that the meeting you plan to attend is scheduled on the first floor, please call (617) 354-8807 before attending a meeting so that we can make sure that the group needing wheelchair accessibility is moved to the first floor.
There are five computers with Internet access located in wheelchair-accessible space.

Parking
Most spots on Pleasant Street that are very near to the Center are free (non-permit) parking. There is a good deal of non-permit parking or two-hour parking on River Street. There is also metered parking throughout the Central Square area.
If it is after 6:30 pm, you may park in the Keezer's parking lot (small store located diagonally from the Center). You will need to provide your driver's license to a Women's Center volunteer to get a Keezer's permit.
We have only two Cambridge Parking Permits. If you have no other option, you may park on Cottage or Williams Street and exchange your driver's license for a permit at the front desk. There is no guarantee that these permits will be available.

Street Cleaning
From April 1 to December 31, watch out for street cleaning signs. The City of Cambridge tickets and tows cars parked illegally during street cleaning times.

Snow Emergency Parking
During a declared snow emergency, check signs for where you can park. On Pleasant Street, you can park on the right (even) side only. During snow emergencies, we suggest taking public transportation if possible, as parking in the neighborhood is very difficult.
