Boston Linux & UNIX was originally founded in 1994 as part of The Boston Computer Society. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Building E51.

Getting to E51-335:

Directions on getting to the Tang Center (Building E51) parking lot are below.

E51 has a small parking lot in back, and the back entrance leads into the first floor. Enter the building through the parking lot entrance, and follow the corridor to the left.

There's an elevator at the end of the short corridor, on the right. This elevator is further from Room 335 than the other elevator, but close to the vending machines and bathrooms on the third floor. The other elevator, down the corridor to the left, is directly across from 315.

Follow the corridor to the left, and then take the elevator to the third floor. The room directly across the corridor as you exit the elevator is Room 315; Room 335 is a few doors to the right of 315.
