Clubs & Organizations

There are hundreds of Yale clubs and organizations representing the wide-ranging interests and affiliations of the community. For a more or less complete list, see the Yale College list of registered organizations or the Graduate School's student organization Web page. If you don’t see what you are looking for, keep in mind that typically campus clubs change often as club leaders finish their work or graduate and leave Yale. Consider heading efforts to revive or begin a group, and you will find that there are a number of support funds available. Also, do not assume that you are not welcome in a group. For example, the Outdoors Club, while organized and run by undergraduates, welcomes the participation of anyone in the Yale community, including graduate students, staff and postdocs/visiting scholars.

If you have questions about organizations at Yale, or if you are interested in starting a new group, or reviving a defunct club on campus, email for assistance.
