MBTA: Ruggles and Northeastern stops.
Parking is available for $20 at the Renaissance Garage, 835 Columbus Ave (that is the only entrance to drive into, do not follow Google Maps to a back or side entrance; it’s wrong). You can exit the side of the garage, go up and through Ruggles Station, and leave through the Forsyth Street exit. From there, Shillman Hall is ahead to the left and the Egan Center is ahead to the right. Campus Map: https://www.northeastern.edu/campusmap/printable/campusmap15.pdf
