Parking is very expensive in New Haven, and most people can get by without a car (in inclement weather, you can Uber/Lyft across the city for about $10, parking is likely $25+). If you are driving, most Yale lots are free and open to the public, but only after hours (5pm - 7am).  For all other times, there are a few visitor lots nearby with hourly or daily parking fees.  The closest pay-by-app lot is Lot 16V  (Parkmobile, location 2087).   See Yale Parking Maps for more information. Note: There may be limited availability in Lot 16, for a daily fee. Check with your host for more information.
