Determining your primary affiliation with Yale, will help you understand what direction to look in when making housing arrangements:



Housing Arrangements


Yale College Freshmen


Yale College freshmen will be assigned to a residential college in July. While most Yale College students will live on campus for four years, some juniors and seniors will opt to live off campus.


Graduate and Professional (G&P) students


Graduate and Professional (G&P) students seeking a Yale degree can find information about on-campus housing here. As on-campus housing is limited, many G&P students (including non-degree students) rent off-campus housing, which is plentiful and available in a range of prices, situations and conditions.   


Visiting scholars, postdocs, faculty and staff


Visiting scholars, postdocs and many staff and faculty at Yale live in the neighborhoods surrouding the campus. Off-campus housing is available in a range of prices and conditions and much of the housing is conveniently located within the free Yale Shuttle boundaries.
