Members of the Yale community who drive to work and do not participate in the Yale parking program are strongly discouraged from parking on residential streets in neighborhoods around Yale’s campus. Yale supports New Haven’s residential parking zones which help ensure adequate parking for New Haven residents. Enforcement actions such as tickets, towing, and booting of vehicles may result from parking violations. Please contact the Yale Parking Office for assistance with your parking needs.
