The following directions refer to this campus map.
If you will be arriving in a car, please note that parking can be tricky around the Yale campus.
On arrival, you can go to the housing office in Swing Space (aka New Residence Hall, which is at 100 Tower Parkway, or spot 2 on the map) and register for parking. Metered street parking is available in the meantime at $1.25 per hour. You will be asked to provide credit card information to be entered on a secure Web site in exchange for a parking code that will give you access to Prospect Sachem Garage, near Ingalls Rink (top right of the map). The fees for parking there are $5 per day.
Lot 51, located on Temple street (spot 6 on the map) is free of charge after 4pm weekdays and all day on weekends, but may be full much of the weekend due to New Haven's International Festival of Arts and Ideas.
