From I-84 Eastbound: Take I-91 South New Haven (Exit 52) from Hartford and proceed with directions above.

Continue on Columbus Boulevard through five sets of lights to the intersection of Charter Oak Avenue. (At this point, Columbus Boulevard becomes Wyllys Street.) Proceed with directions for parking written below.
Where to Park
PARKING IS OFF WYLLYS STREET. For parking, do not turn left onto Charter Oak Avenue. Rather, proceed straight through the intersection onto Wyllys Street (beyond the CREC building) and take the first left into the parking lot entrance between the Church of the Good Shepherd and its Rectory. A well-marked path will lead you to the CREC building. The small parking lot off Charter Oak Avenue is for short-term visitors only.
