Yale University reviews
Yale is a beautiful college built within the city. Walk around and see the stunning architecture of the old campus. It’s right next to the New Haven Green as well. more »
The Yale University Campus is immense! Seems fairly walkable with opportunities to enjoy greenery throughout campus grounds. Very close to Downtown so lots of eating options and things to do. more »
I went to Yale, a couple of times. The vibe here is so refreshing and so motivating, I cannot explain. I visited couple of museums and find them quite interesting. I also attended a lecture which was open to public and it gave me a feel of Yale lecture halls. There are many cafes and fresh restaurants that should be checked out.
Great campus! They have lots of free guided tours to bring you around the school so do join them to get a better experience! The campus is big as well, with lots of different buildings and styles. Nice to take a walk under the tree shadows in the summer. Lovely place
