Planning your trip 

We are excited for you to join us for the 2019 Global Environmental Justice Conference at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The conference will take place on Friday, November 15 at Kroon Hall, with breakout panel sessions happening next door in Sage Hall (Burke Auditorium). 

Getting to the Venue

  • From I-91 or I-95

  • Arriving in New Haven take I-91 north towards Hartford, and immediately exit on Exit 3 (Trumbull Street) into the center of New Haven. On the exit ramp stay in the middle lane, and continue straight onto Trumbull Street. At the fifth traffic light, turn right onto Prospect Street. Drive one block on Prospect St., continue straight through the first traffic light (Sachem Street), and Kroon Hall (195 Prospect Street) is the second building on the right hand side of the street.

Guests may also pay by the hour to park in Lot 16V at Whitney Avenue and Humphrey Street, or in the visitor lot on Trumbull Street (between Temple and Hillhouse). Both are $2/hour. More Yale visitor parking options can be found here.
