Housing Expenses

Yale Housing operates the three apartment buildings located on Divinity School property, with priority given to YDS students. These buildings contain eighty-four units total, consisting of junior one-bedroom, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Two-bedroom units are assigned to residents with dependent children or to single students who wish to reside with a roommate.

Apartments are unfurnished, and each has a living room, kitchenette (refrigerator and stove included), and bathroom. All students are expected to supply their own linens, flatware, dishes, cooking utensils, pillows, blankets, and other housekeeping equipment. Each building has laundry facilities in the basement.

Rental fees are charged monthly to students’ accounts and include heat, hot water, electricity, and wireless Ethernet. Parking is also provided to students possessing proof of vehicle ownership. In the 2020–2021 academic year, the monthly rates for apartments are: $900 for a junior one-bedroom, $1,050 for a one-bedroom, $1,200 for a two-bedroom, and $600 per person for a shared two-bedroom apartment. Housing licenses for incoming students run from August 1 to June 30 and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Contracts for renewing students are twelve months, beginning July 1 and expiring June 30. Rental fees for summer housing are not covered in students’ financial aid packages for the academic year.

Online requests for housing can be submitted beginning April 20 at https://housing.yale.edu.

Students receive notification of available housing, based on their application criteria, via e-mail. See University Housing Services, in the chapter Yale University Resources and Services.
