On-Campus Services

Yale West Campus offers many services to its occupants. These services span from dining and child care to state-of-the-art conference and fitness centers. It is vital that campus services are commensurate with the lively and growing community.

Car Share Program

The University Car Share pilot program at West Campus allows West Campus faculty, students, or staff to reserve a fleet car for any business, academic, departmental or organizational activity which includes local meetings or conferences between campuses. The West Campus fleet consists of two vehicles, (1) seven passenger 2012 Chevrolet Traverse and (1) five passenger 2012 Chevrolet Equinox. Vehicles are reserved from your computer or laptop through a new fleet management software entitled Fleet Focus. You must complete the Driver Safety Awareness Training and are encouraged to view the Online Training Demonstration prior to reserving any vehicle. Under no circumstances are you allowed to drive a University vehicle without first completing the driver safety training. The Yale Car Share Program brochure outlines fees and other important information. Proper charging instructions are required in order to complete a registration. West Campus occupants have already been loaded into the vehicle registration system with charging based on their institute, core or unit affiliation. Please contact Beth Bolen of the West Campus Administration with questions about registration or charging. Each vehicle is equipped with parking passes for specific central and medical campus parking lots and a gas card to refill vehicles after use.
