Directions to Yale Divinity School

By Car


GPS Address: Yale Divinity School, 409 Prospect St, New Haven, CT 

From Interstate 95 (from east or west)

At New Haven take I-91 North to Exit 3, Trumbull Street. Continue to the fifth traffic light, where Trumbull Street ends (do not continue onto Canal St). Then turn right onto Prospect Street and proceed one mile up the hill to 409 Prospect Street, which is on the right. Visitor parking is available along the driveway just beyond the Sterling Divinity Quadrangle sign.


From Interstate 91 (from north)

Take exit 3, Trumbull Street, and follow the directions above.

By Train

Catch the Amtrak, MetroNorth, or Shoreline East train to New Haven, Union Station.

The easiest way to get to the Yale Divinity School from here will be by taxi or Uber. It’s a good 45 minute walk from the station to the Divinity School; for safety reasons it is best not to walk alone (at least until you reach downtown). There are CT Transit buses available, but they run infrequently on weekends and you would have to make several changes to get to the YDS. (You can explore your options at http://www.cttransit.com/) 
There is also a free Yale Shuttle, which runs approximately every half hour on weekends and which does include both Union Station and Prospect St on its route. See ‘Getting Around New Haven’ for further details. 

By Plane


The nearest airport is Tweed-New Haven Airport. You can catch a taxi downtown and proceed from there. Alternatively, you can fly into one of the larger airports in New York City and catch a shuttle service or public transportation (the subway or LIRR, followed by the Metro North train line) to New Haven. From Bradley International Airport in Hartford, it's about a 1 hour drive south or 2-3 hours by public transport (bus to Hartford, followed by bus or Amtrak to New Haven.) 



Free parking will be available in the Divinity School parking lot; follow the driveway just north of the Sterling Divinity Quadrangle Sign. A small amount of parking may also be available in a lot just to the south of the YDS. 

Unmetered on-street parking is available on a number of streets close to the Yale Divinity School.  

There is a large Yale parking lot next to the Peabody Museum on Whitney Ave, and a neighboring lot that may be accessed from Edwards St. Parking is free on weekends, but there is a fairly steep 15 minute walk from there to the singing.

Other Yale parking sites can be found here: http://to.yale.edu/parking-map Parking lots marked in yellow (which are restricted on weekdays but open to the public overnight) should be freely accessible on weekends.


Getting Around New Haven


On weekends during the daytime, the free Yale Shuttle Blue Line runs approximately every half hour. It goes up Prospect St right past the Yale Divinity School (where the singing is being held) but its timing cannot always be relied upon. You can find its route here:
