Housing Policies

Undergraduate Regulations

Students in their first four terms of enrollment must live on campus unless they are married or are at least twenty-one years of age on the first day of classes in the term in question. On-campus housing is guaranteed to first-year students and sophomores, for whom residence is required. Housing is generally available for all who request it, but availability is not guaranteed. Please visit Yale College Undergraduate Regulations for complete Housing Regulations.

Fee/Reimbursement Schedule

An undergraduate who participates in the room draw of a residential college in the spring and accepts a room as a result of the draw, has contracted for that room. If that student subsequently relinquishes the room, they may be subjected to a relinquishment fee and/or per diem charges. Please refer to Financial Services Regulations for the complete fee/reimbursement schedule.
