The Harvard School of Public Health's main building complex is located in the heart of Boston's hospital district and Harvard University's Longwood campus. The facilities adjoin those of Harvard's Medical School, School of Dental Medicine, and Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine, and are near Children's Hospital Medical Center, Beth Israel/Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and other Harvard-affiliated hospitals. The school is located within walking distance of the newly designated "Avenue of the Arts" which includes many cultural institutions, such as Boston's Museum of Fine Arts.  Public transportation is readily available to other parts of Boston and Cambridge, where students may cross-register for courses at other Harvard schools and at MIT.
