Info Accordions

Yes! The interactive Yale Campus Map is an excellent resource; it is searchable, gives information about specific buildings, and connects to Google Maps. Use it not only for driving but also for walking around campus and discovering new places!

For day and overnight visitors, we have made free parking available (from 1 pm on Thursday) at Yale's Pierson-Sage Garage on Whitney Ave. north of the Peabody Museum. You may use the Reunion Shuttle to get to your reunion headquarters. Parking on the street is subject to meters, ticketing and towing; public lots and garages are usually not open 24 hours a day; and Yale lots have either limited or no access.

The Reunion Shuttle services Union Station, the reunion hotels, La Quinta Inn on Long Wharf, reunion headquarters, and other locations on campus such as York St. across from Rose Alumni House and the corner of College and Wall Sts. Reunion Shuttles are identified by “Yale Reunions” signs and should not be confused with Yale Shuttles, which have established routes that may take you away from campus.

New Haven is served by both Metro North (511 from New York; 800-690-5114) and Amtrak (800-USA-RAIL).  Reunion shuttles, a taxi or ride-share will bring you the short distance to campus.

Tweed-New Haven airport, serviced by American Airlines, is the closest to campus. Bradley International Airport is just north of Hartford and the New York area airports.

The three New York airports offer the widest range of airlines and flights, as well as more advantageous fares.

  • JFK is about two hours away from New Haven.  Public transportation via Airtrain and Subway can take you to midtown Manhattan in 50 minutes; from there you can take Metro North or Amtrak to New Haven
  • La Guardia is slightly closer to New Haven and public transportation into Manhattan is by bus and subway.
  • Newark Liberty International has the advantage of an Amtrak station on the main line to New Haven.

The Hartford and New York airports are accessible by commercial shuttles which will bring you to a central campus location in New Haven.  Advance reservations are required.  Companies include:

GO Airport Shuttle: 1-800-377-8745
Red Dot Airport Shuttle: 1-800-673-3368 (service from/to JFK and LaGuardia only).
