President Peter Salovey and Provost Scott Strobel announced on July 1 that Yale will welcome graduate and professional school students and a portion of the undergraduate population back to campus for the fall semester. The reactivation of campus-based research is under way already.

The university’s response is based on the guidance of Yale experts and of local, state, and federal officials, and follows key principles:

  • Yale’s actions will be guided by considerations for the health and safety of faculty, staff, students, and neighbors.
  • Decisions about health and safety made by the university in the context of COVID-19 will be evidence-based and data-driven to the extent possible. 
  • Decisions should sustain – and advance whenever possible – the quality of teaching and research at Yale.

Please monitor Yale’s COVID-19 webpage for real-time updates on university policies and guidance.
