Directions & Parking
Bridgewater State University is in the geographic heart of Southeastern Massachusetts within easy access by major highways. The campus is approximately 40 minutes south of Boston, 30 minutes north of Cape Cod and 50 minutes northeast of Providence, RI.
Parking rules differ depending on whether or not you are a BSU student. Please observe the following parking rules:
Parking for test candidates who are NOT BSU students:
Please park in the West Campus Lot on 34 Park Avenue, which is directly across the street from the Maxwell Library. If that lot is full, park in the Moakley Center Lot on 100 Burrill Avenue. If a parking attendant is present, stop, and inform them that you are taking a test at Testing Services. To park in these lots, test candidates who are NOT BSU students must display a visitor parking pass on their dashboard or risk getting a parking ticket. You can create your own visitor parking passes online by visiting our guest parking website. You do not need a BSU e-mail address to use this service. Click here to access the guest parking website. Then, click "create an account" if it is your first time using the system. If you are a returning visitor, log in with the e-mail address and password you created.
You can also obtain a visitor parking pass from the Parking Services and Connect Card Office in Hunt Hall on 26 School Street and from the BSU police dispatcher at 200 Great Hill Drive.
Parking for test candidates who ARE BSU students:
Current BSU students with parking decals should park in their normal designated lots.
Bridgewater State University has a commuter rail stop right here on campus, on 85 Burrill Avenue, adjacent to the West Campus Lot. Our stop is on the Middleborough/Lakeville line.
In cases of inclement weather or emergency, BSU Testing follows Bridgewater State University's closure policy. If the university closes due to weather, or any other reason, BSU Testing closes as well. For the most up to date weather-related closure information, refer to the BSU homepage. You can also call the campus weather line at 508-531-1777. Any exams that need to be rescheduled due to weather-related closures will not incur any extra fees or charges.
