The following estimations of the cost of living in New Haven for the 2014-2015 academic year are made available as a general reference for graduate students and used by the Office of Financial Aid to calculate financial need as required by certain funding sources. The figures include room and board, transportation, personal expenses and academic expenses excluding tuition.

These figures also include the cost of hospitalization for a single student. Living expenses for doctoral students may be less insofar as they are eligible to receive a health award that covers the full cost of single-student hospitalization and specialty coverage in the Yale Health Plan, half the cost of two-person coverage, and the full cost of family coverage.
