Housing in New Haven is abundant and affordable. It’s easy to find a nice apartment in a great neighborhood within walking distance of the School of Music or on the free shuttle route. Some students choose to live in graduate dorms, and others choose to rent apartments on- or off-campus.
For general information on graduate housing options, start with the Yale Graduate Housing Office. If you would like to live in a graduate dorm, note that most YSM students choose Helen Hadley Hall. The Hall of Graduate Studies is closed for renovations starting in May, 2018. Both are within a 5-minute walk of the School of Music.
For off-campus housing options, visit University Properties. Yale also maintains an Off-campus Housing Database that does not require a Yale ID to access. Other helpful sites for apartments and shares include SageBoy.net, which is run out of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and Craigslist.
Most YSM students who live off campus live downtown (within very easy walking distance) or in East Rock (a 10- to 25-minute walk and on the free Yale Shuttle line). To learn more about the New Haven community, see here.
