Using the Interactive Campus Map

Our Interactive Campus Map allows you to get detailed information on buildings, parking lots, athletic venues, and much more - all from your computer or mobile device. You can even use the Wayfinding button to find walking directions from point to point on our campuses.

Instructions for Using the Interactive Campus Map
  • Getting Started

    From a Computer

    When you open the Interactive Campus Map, the default view is to show the West Haven Campus with building labels turned on.

    In the left sidebar, each category can be clicked to drill in and view more detail about the locations in that category. To show all of the locations under a single category, click on the box to the right of the category title (Buildings, Parking & Transportation, etc.). This will cause icons to display on the map for each clickable location or feature. You can select more than one box to show multiple locations and categories simultaneously.

    On the map, click on an icon on the map to open information in the sidebar - a description, photos, and more.

    From a Mobile Device

    When you open the Interactive Campus Map from a mobile device, use the hamburger menu in the upper left (three horizontal lines) to begin navigating. Clicking that menu will open Locations tab by default.

    In the open menu, each category can be clicked to drill in and view more detail about the locations in that category. To show all of the locations under a single category, click on the box to the right of the category title (Buildings, Parking & Transportation, etc.).

Once you have selected the category or location you wish to view, simply swipe the menu out of the way to view the icons on the map.

    On the map, click on an icon on the map to open information - a description, photos, and more - then swipe the information panel open from the bottom of your mobile device. Use the X in the upper right to close the information panel for that category or location, and see the map again.
