Housing Accommodations

To request housing accommodations, all students must:

Information specific to…

You must submit your completed request (documentation included) by May 10, 2023. If submitted by the deadline, the Housing Committee will review your request and eligibility. A timely response is especially important because once a rooming assignment has been made, it will not be possible to change it. Once housing assignments are finalized and made public, you will be notified of the Committee decision. For general housing information, please review Yale Housing and the Residential College webpages.

You must submit a supplemental housing request (documentation included) by January 25, 2024. Once submitted, the Housing Committee will review your request. A meeting with an SAS staff member may be needed to discuss the request. For assistance with submitting a supplemental request, please review our Supplemental Accommodation Request guide or Supplemental Accommodation Request video guide.

You must submit your completed request (Housing Form included) before completing the graduate housing application. Graduate housing is not guaranteed for any student. First-year graduate students will not be expected to have a meeting with SAS as they are not yet on-campus.

Graduate Housing Applications for 2023-2024 Academic Year will open on Saturday, April 1, at 9:00 am EST. You must submit your completed request (documentation included) by March 31st, 2023. If submitted by the deadline, the Housing Committee will review your request and eligibility. A timely response is especially important because once a rooming assignment has been made, it will not be possible to change it. For general housing information, please review the Yale Housing webpage.

The roommate matching application also opens on April 1. Should you decide to match with a roommate, Room Selection for matched roommates opens on Wednesday, April 19. Room Selection for all other room types opens on April 20. All Room Selections start at 9:00 a.m. EST. The process is quite competitive due to the limited number of rooms we have available so it’s best to log in at 9:00 am on Room Selection day and filling out the housing application before April 20.

A housing application webinar was held on Wednesday, March 29 at 11:00 am EST which explains the process. The replay will be available and posted on the Graduate Housing website. You can also view last year’s webinar which is still posted along with some FAQs.
