Returning to Yale: The Academic Year Ahead
Updated July 8, 2020
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.
Health and safety are, and must be, Yale’s paramount and continuous concerns as it pursues its educational and scholarly missions in the 2020-21 academic year. The university’s plans adhere to the advice of public health experts and reflect the input of Yale’s own COVID-19 Contingency Planning Committees, and are in accord with Governor Ned Lamont’s roadmap for reopening Connecticut.
This website addresses many important aspects of life at Yale in the months ahead, including health guidelines — but also who may study on campus and when, residential life, the nature of instruction, the workplace, and more. We hope it will serve all members of the Yale community as they envision and prepare for the academic year before us.
