Student Experience

Although many students are not overly impressed by New Haven itself they are big fans of Yale’s campus.

Most visitors felt that the beauty of the campus left a lasting impression and the architecture was stunning. Students commented that they like that Yale is split into a series of smaller colleges, giving the university a more intimate feel than many other leading universities.

As is to be expected from one of the Ivy League universities, the buildings are immaculately maintained, and are in a constant cycle of renovation inside to maintain fantastic interior classrooms. The architecture itself is gothic and beautiful, and the campus looks gorgeous whatever the season.

Back to New Haven, many consider it a gritty sort of city that you will either love or hate. The size of the city does mean that there is a large selection of restaurants, cafes, and bars. Unfortunately many parts of the city are considered dangerous; this is not really a problem, as most people know to keep out of these areas. As a student city (the university of new haven is also here) there are many businesses in New Haven that cater specifically for students needs.

Safety on the campus at Yale itself is fine, though some students comment that there does not seem to much security measures on site given its proximately to New Haven. Conversely others state that there are more than enough security staff around and that the university runs a blue light system, and the campus police offer a shuttle service for those who require it.

The dorms are very variable, with many people commented on their large size, suite nature, wooden floors, and the community feel if the residential colleges. However, some people comment on the lack of air-conditioning, and that they tend to be a bit messy.
