Travel and Housing
How do I get there?
The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies is located at 195 Prospect Street, New Haven, Connecticut. It is housed mainly in Kroon Hall, which serves as an anchor for Yale's "Science Hill." Yale Law School is located at 127 Wall Street, New Haven, Connecticut, and occupies the block bounded by Grove, York, Wall, and High Streets at the heart of the Yale campus in downtown New Haven.
By trains and planes:
Trains run regularly to New Haven from New York City (via Metro-North Railroad or Amtrak) and from Boston and Washington, DC (via Amtrak). US Air provides connections to Tweed-New Haven Airport from many U.S. cities. Bradley International Airport in Hartford (BDL) accommodates all major airlines (including the economy airlines such as Southwest) and has direct flights to most major cities. It is located about 40 miles north of New Haven and may be reached by either car or Connecticut Limousine's Shuttle Service. The three major New York airports - John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), and Newark (EWR) - are all accessible from New Haven by train or Q-Conn Shuttle or Car Service. Newark Airport has an Amtrak stop that connects directly to New Haven, making EWR particularly convient. Similarly, LaGuardia Airport is connected to the Metro-North Railroad by a New York City local bus (the M60), making transfers to New Haven from LGA both convenient and economical.

We will have a very small room to store personal belongings near the conference registration table.
