Yale Campus Map

Getting to Tournament Registration

The following directions will take you to Dwight Hall. This is where the tournament registration occurs. However, this is not always the site for tab or the center of weekend activities. Traditionally, Saturday speech is centered in Linsly Chittenden Hall next door to Dwight, while Debate is often at a satellite location (with transportation provided). All Sunday competition is held from LC Hall. If you ever get lost on campus, consult the Yale Campus Map or ask a YDA student for directions.

Parking can be difficult, so leave extra time.
