Silliman Campus Map and Parking

Class of 2022 and Parents!

Silliman has four main gates, one at College Street, Wall Street, Temple Street, and Grove Street.  The two gates closest to First-year students’ entryways are those at College Street and Wall Street.  We have reserved four parking spots for drop-off on College Street and three parking spots for drop-off on Wall Street on Friday, August 24th.  Look for the yellow-bagged meters.  Silliman upperclassmen, known as Smooth Movers, will greet you, help you unload your car and help carry all the items to your room.  As soon as your car is emptied, we ask that you move your car so the next family can be helped. There will also be Smooth Movers at the Temple Street and Grove Street gates in case you snag parking spots there, but there are no reserved drop-off spots for those gates.  Smooth Movers will be wearing clearly labeled Smooth Mover t-shirts – don’t be shy about flagging them down if you need help. 

Below are driving directions from all four Silliman gates to the two Yale Parking areas where you can park free.  (We will also provide maps when you arrive.)  Shuttle buses will be running all day to take you to and from the residential college and parking areas.
