There will be a toll - try to get as far to the right
as possible. Exit off to the right to get onto

River Road then automatically turns into South Street.
The main entrance to Brandeis will be on your left in
another mile. Take this left, and you'll see a white
security shack. Pass the shack on your right. Go
