Arriving on Campus

Get to Southern Connecticut State University

There are several options for getting from JFK Airport or LaGuardia International to our New haven, CT campus location.

 From the airport:

When you arrive at LaGuardia or JFK go to the Ground Transportation Center and request the Go Shuttle of Connecticut to New Haven. Go Shuttle (available only from LaGuardia or JFK Airports) goes directly to SCSU. For more information, visit Go Shuttle at  or call (877) 544-4646. We advise international students to choose JFK as their arrival airport as this is the most convenient airport for international arrivals. DO NOT TAKE A TAXI FROM ANY NEW YORK OR NEW JERSEY AIRPORT! It’s very expensive.

By car:

 I-95, Exit 44 (Kimberly Avenue, Route 10). Turn right at the end of the exit onto Kimberly Avenue, then left at the stoplight onto Ella Grasso Boulevard, Route 10. Ella Grasso Boulevard ends at Crescent Street, near the south entrance of the campus

Rt. 15, Merritt-Wilbur Cross Parkway, Exit 59 (Whalley Avenue). Head south on Whalley Avenue, turn left onto Fitch Street, which bisects the campus.

By bus or train:

 Amtrak and Metro North trains and Peter Pan buses all make regular stops at the Union Station, New Haven. From there you can take a quick 15 ride to campus.
