Access to Yale University
All partners have access to the Payne Whitney gym and the Yale shuttle service. In addition, partners may audit Yale SOM and Yale College electives with permission from the professor. Only married and same-sex domestic partners and children have access to the Yale Health Services. Email accounts and off-hours building access are not provided to partners.
International Spouses and Partners at Yale (ISPY) was created by and for spouses and partners of international graduate students, post-docs, scholars, and professionals at Yale. The group brings together spouses and partners to make social connections, create a support network, and share information.
Many partners work throughout Yale University. To get an idea of the range of job opportunities, check the Yale Human Resources website.
Outside of Yale, there are myriad opportunities in New Haven and the surrounding towns. Some of the nation’s largest corporations are headquartered in Connecticut.
Yale Work Life Program maintains a comprehensive childcare directory. The directory provides information about daycare, preschool, and babysitting and nanny services. It also lists local activities for families.
Another resource is 2-1-1 Child Care Infoline, a free childcare referral telephone service in Connecticut.
Begin researching childcare options as early as possible, as many facilities fill up well before the academic year begins.
