Welcome to the Yale Graduate Community!

Yale Housing strives to provide a safe and supportive residential environment that fosters a sense of community and enhances the educational experience for all graduate and professional students and their families.

Graduate Housing buildings at Yale are full of charm and history. Many of the buildings that house students have been used for various purposes over the years. Yale University Facilities staff maintain our buildings, working with the Housing staff to identify and address concerns as they arise.
