West Campus is situated in a mostly suburban area. While close to I-95 and MetroNorth, the surroundings are not particularly walkable. There are many Zipcar locations around New Haven, which you may use if you have an existing Zipcar account. Attendees may wish to reserve a car to get around in after they arrive in Connecticut.
