The Yale Housing office is responsible for providing housing options on and around the Yale campus.  Our office manages a limited number of on-campus, Yale owned and operated dormitories and apartments, for Graduate and Professional Students only. Our buildings provide a safe and supportive residential environment that fosters a sense of community and enhances the Yale experience for all graduate and professional students and their families.

This online secure database lists property rentals and homes for sale throughout the greater New Haven area.
