About the map

Welcome to the Yale University interactive map. Please use the map to quickly find buildings and organizations on campus. You may search by building name or address, or by the name of a particular school, department, office, or organization. For more tips on navigating the site, see the help page.

The interactive map also serves as a geographically based portal to the University. Many search results (marked with the icon) link to the Web sites of individual schools, departments, offices, and organizations at Yale.

The map and database are maintained by the Office of the Yale University Printer. Please use the "request a change" form to submit comments or questions, or to let us know if you find mistakes or omissions on the site.
