This form must be filled out and returned by every entering transfer student, whether or not you are an applicant for a residential college room. Notice of residential college affiliation and room assignment will be mailed by mid-July. Answers to the academic questions at the end of the form will be shared with your adviser to help him or her advise you better.
Yale strongly believes that the best housing situations involve an interplay of people with different backgrounds and interests. It is our experience that Yale College students gain much from such an interplay, and with this in mind the information you provide on this form will be used to assign you to your residential college and to your roommates. This system has worked extraordinarily well in the past, and transfers may securely rest their confidence in it.
1. Each Yale College student is a member of one of the fourteen residential colleges and the Yale College Dean’s Office will give you your assignment.
2. Housing consists of suites typically made up of a common living room with attached bedrooms that accommodate two or four students. It is not possible to honor requests for single rooms.
3. Once housing has been assigned, it is impossible to honor requests for changes.
4. Sophomores are required to live on campus unless they are married or are at least twenty-one years of age. Requests for permission to live off campus for any one of these reasons must be submitted in writing with this form.
5. A student who for a specific medical reason requests special consideration in rooming should state the circumstances on an attached piece of paper. This is especially important because once the assignment has been made, it will be impossible to change .
