Visiting Yale

The Yale Visitor Center works with individuals with accommodation needs to allow them access to all of the programs and tours scheduled through the center.  If you or a member of your group believe that they will require a specific accommodation, please notify the visitor center as soon as possible. Accommodations for visitors such as assistive listening devices, interpreters, and temporary proximate parking may be arranged by contacting the office at 203-432-2302. Please make this request at least 2 weeks in advance of the date needed.

Accessible Parking and Transportation

The Yale Parking & Transit Office provides a variety of parking and transportation resources on and around campus.  Students, staff and faculty who require proximate parking may obtain a medical waiver form at the Yale parking office or on the Parking Forms page. If approved, the Parking Service Office will make every effort to assign parking that meets the individual’s needs as circumstances allow. In addition, door-to-door van service is available from parking lots to buildings within the campus boundaries. This program is restricted to approved registered users and runs on a limited basis.
