The 242,000-square-foot Edward P. Evans Hall, designed by Foster + Partners, chaired by Lord Norman Foster ARCH ’62, is the home of the Yale School of Management.
Edward P. Evans Hall
As a student at Yale SOM, you will benefit from a campus tailored to maximize the strengths of our program. Key features inside Edward P. Evans Hall include 16 state-of-the-art classrooms, the 350-seat Zhang Auditorium, a dining commons and coffee shop, and the Beinecke Terrace Room, a lecture hall/entertainment space with an outdoor terrace providing views of landscaped gardens in the rear of the campus. At the center of Evans Hall is an enclosed courtyard, which acts as the heart of the school, providing outdoor space to study and socialize. The courtyard, glass façade, and open layout allows people to see from one area to another across the campus, creating a unifying effect, a sense that activities throughout the building are interconnected.

The campus features 16 classroom designs of varying layouts and sizes directly inspired by the need for a teaching and learning environment that supports the school’s integrated curriculum
Breakout rooms, lounges, the library, and other common spaces—as well as faculty offices—are positioned to maximize interchange and collaboration, hallmarks of the school’s integrated approach to MBA education.
The transparency of the overall design combined with social spaces positioned at significant hubs strengthen the sense of community.
Yale SOM is closely tied to the broader university both in its location and its programs. That means you have easy access to the splendors of the university's neogothic campus and the wealth of art museums, performance spaces, and libraries. Take classes, attend talks, and get to know students at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, the Law School, the Medical School, and other programs at Yale.
The City of New Haven, CT
Yale University is set in the lively and diverse city of New Haven, CT with easy access to New York City, Boston, and the Connecticut shoreline. Jump on a train and, in less than two hours, you're in New York City for a job interview, other professional activities, or just a night out.
A walk of a few blocks from the Yale SOM campus takes you past the much-loved food carts that pull up along the streets every weekday or one of the city's highly regarded restaurants; the boutiques along Chapel Street or a neighborhood market in East Rock; a top-notch regional theater or the busy nightclub district.
And then there's the pizza—a subject of great conversation and debate here.
