The Campus

Yale’s tree-lined campus in New Haven, Connecticut, has housed “a company of scholars and a society of friends” for over 250 years.

Today it’s also home to one of the world’s largest research libraries, several of the most comprehensive global art collections, and over one million square feet of laboratory research space.

Yale’s campus is known for its iconic buildings designed by noted architects, particularly the Georgian-style and Gothic Revival buildings in Old Campus, as well as the more modern buildings such as the marble- and granite-paned Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library and Eero Saarinen’s distinctive Ingalls Rink (a.k.a. “The Whale”).

The Yale University Art Gallery, the Yale Center for British Art, and the Peabody Museum of Natural History are active centers of undergraduate teaching and research on campus.

The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs is located in Horchow Hall, one of the stately mansions along Hillhouse Avenue.
