Travel Information to Yale

Yale University is located in New Haven, Connecticut.

 

Teal Classroom

We will be meeting in the TEAL classroom at 17 Hillhouse Ave. See here for a Yale university map, or you can use your favorite mapmaker to guide you from your hotel to the building. Enter the building (looks like an old hospital) on Hillhouse avenue, and the TEAL classroom will be immediately on your left.

For lunch options, there are a number of restaurants on Temple and Whitney AVe., just east of the TEAL classroom. There are lunch carts just a block north and a block west of the building as well.

Air travel

Update: New Haven Airport (HVN) is about 5 miles away from the hotel and it is now as cheap to fly into HVN as into LGA although a one-stop flight. The flights are not as regular, so in weather it is not as easy for sure, but this is certainly another option if people do not plan to rent a car.

New Haven is a 1 hour drive from Bradley International Airport (BDL), near Hartford, Connecticut, and a 1 hour, 30 minute drive from Laguardia Airport (LGA) in New York City. Direct flights from Chicago are typically a bit cheaper through LGA.

From the airports to New Haven

If you choose not to rent a car, there are a few options for getting to New Haven from nearby major airports.

Train

There is both an Amtrak and Metro-North train station in New Haven. There is an Amtrak station in Hartford, accessible by bus via the airport, and the Metro-North line can be picked up in Manhattan, accessble to LGA by bus. Both, round trip, are about $30.

Shuttle

CT Limo offers shuttle service between Yale's campus and nearby major airports (BDL, LGA, JFK, and EWR) at typical hours. Cost is ~>$100 per person. Check the website for specific cost and schedules.
