Graduate Housing

Welcome to the Yale Graduate Community!

The Yale Housing office is responsible for providing graduate 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. Additionally, Yale Housing manages a housing website, that provides off-campus, alternative housing for all members of the Yale community. This online secure database lists property rentals and homes for sale throughout the greater New Haven area.

Yale Housing offers a variety of living options within our portfolio from dormitories and suites, to one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Some of these buildings come with their own history and charm. Yale Housing works closely with Yale Facilities in maintaining, upgrading, and renovating the buildings year-to-year.

We boast a diverse community of graduate students and their families. Among them you will enjoy a sense of community and belonging.

We strive to provide a safe and supportive residential environment to enhance your educational experience.

To apply log into your Self Service portal here

Especially for graduate students applying for housing from India - please make sure your VPN is changed to a US location before applying for housing.)

  • Mansfield Apartments

I can’t access the Self Service Portal and get an error message.

Even though the Housing Application opens on Saturday, April 1, if you are not able to access it, it’s probably because your profile has not yet migrated into our software. Our software is tied to Banner and once your department uploads their incoming students into Banner, you will populate in our software. It’s just a timing issue. Have you been issued a Yale NetID yet? Your department will be issuing you one which you’ll need to activate. An activated NetID and password is necessary to access the Self Service housing portal.

I read that the Housing Application opens on Saturday, April 1 and Room Selection on the 19th and 20th.  I don’t really understand what that means. Please explain.

Yes, the Housing Application will open on Saturday, April 1 at 9:00 am EST. It’s the first step in applying for housing and you can fill out the housing application anytime from April 1 right up to Room Selection. There is nothing more you need to do.

Room Selection is the important piece, but you don’t go into Room Selection unless you have filled out a housing application. On April 19 Room Selection for Matched Roommates opens at 9:00 am EST. And then on April 20 Room Selection opens for all others. Room Selection is first come, first serve.

The Housing Application and Room Selection will remain open until all beds are filled.
