This map shows the boundaries of where most students live in New Haven, including areas that students feel are the most secure. Far to the West of campus, "West Campus" presides as a satellite Yale territory. New Haven (Yale University area) locally is made up of four broad geographic locations (or housing regions).
- Central Campus
- East Rock/Science Hill/Prospect Hill
- The Medical Campus
- Wooster Square.
Taxi cabs and non-Yale New Haven citizens might not recognize all of these terms. The only universally understood terms are "The Green" and "East Rock". Taxis may know "Phelps gate" if they are experienced, but asking for "The Green" will also get you to the same location.
