Student Building Use

The Yale School of Nursing building at 400 West Campus Drive in Orange, Connecticut, is a shared space among faculty, staff, and students. The following protocol has been proposed to:

  1. ensure a safe environment for our community,
  2. adhere to University best practices and compliance standards, and
  3. support Yale and YSN sustainability efforts by reducing energy use.


  • Students will be granted access to all floors of the building during regular school hours (defined as 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.).
  • Between 8 p.m. and 7:30 a.m., Yale Nursing students will be permitted access to the garden level and first floor of the building only (garden-level classrooms, wellness room, the Hub, first-floor classrooms, study rooms, and the Learning Commons).
  • Exceptions include approved events and/or classes that take place during non-school hours.
  • Building access will be extended during certain exam periods and communicated in advance to students.
