Campus Tours and Information Sessions

We look forward to welcoming you to Yale.

Registration for a campus visit is optional but helps the office estimate the number of visitors to expect each day. There is no sign-in when you arrive, and if your plans change you will not need to cancel your registration. During your stay, you may join as many admissions events as you like. At certain times in the academic year, visitors may also visit a class or request an on-campus interviewPlease refer to Admissions Office Closings for a list of University holidays.

Yale does not track visits to campus or contact with our admissions staff for the purposes of evaluating applications. 

Upcoming Monthly Schedule:

All information sessions, tours, and student forums begin at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, located at 38 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven, CT unless otherwise noted. We encourage visitors to arrive early to secure parking
