  • From the modern architecture of Evans Hall to the Gothic backdrop of Old Campus, the physical environment at Yale is as representative of diversity as is the student body.

  • Spending time with our classmates at the Omni is just as important as any class because these relationships will be the ones that carry us through to the end of our careers.

A Weekend at Yale

Your rigorous weekend at Yale begins on Friday morning and ends Saturday afternoon. It requires your absolute focus. You will spend 12 hours in class with your professors, attend your colloquium speakers series, and reconnect and deepen your relationships with other mission driven professionals.  You will have opportunities to explore more of Yale University’s historic landmarks and traditions through activities scheduled across the campus.  Attend professional development workshops facilitated by Yale faculty across campus who are thought leaders within their field. In order to inject flexibility into this rigorous weekend schedule we offer the use of our Extended Classroom. This enables students to attend classes through sophisticated video conferencing technology built into our classrooms in Evans Hall, which maintains the quality and integrity of the overall experience.

Getting to Campus

Our campus is located in New Haven, Connecticut which is convenient to Boston, New York with easy access from Philadelphia and Washington. Amtrak Acela and Metro-North trains stop at the New Haven Union Station and, if you are traveling by plane, Bradley International Airport is an hour north and Tweed New Haven Airport is close to campus. Yale SOM is located at 165 Whitney Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut, at the north east corner of Yale University’s campus. If you plan to visit campus, please contact our admissions team to support in that coordination or register for an event online. 

Your Classroom

As a student at Yale SOM, you will benefit from a facility tailored to maximize the strengths of our program.  Our new campus, Edward P. Evans Hall, is an architectural landmark at the north end of Yale University. The 242,000-square-foot Edward P. Evans Hall, designed by Foster + Partners, chaired by Lord Norman Foster ARCH ’62, is the new home of the Yale School of Management.  Classrooms designed to encourage discussion boost the effectiveness of the integrated curriculum. Breakout rooms and other communal spaces are designed to support working with teams. The transparency of the overall design combined with social spaces positioned at significant hubs strengthen the sense of community.
