Yale University reviews
We were in town for a wedding and were able to drive through campus and walk through the green. We enjoyed the classic architecture and collegiate atmosphere.

Very beautiful buildings to see. Worth walking around and seeing. It makes you curious to see the inside of some though.

Due to COVID we could not go into any buildings last year when our son entered grad school. This fall, Oct. 2022, we got the personal tour and it was incredible…the library, the divinity school...

Beautiful campus! Parking was not a problem when I visited. I didn’t know my way around so I asked students for directions and they were friendly and helpful. The place is also clean. Very charming place!
Stunning campus. Reminds me of Oxford. Unfortunately student campus tours were cancelled after we made plans to visit, so we created our own itinerary. Lots of areas were closed off to outsiders, and I watched as students entered through large gates with key-in access from their phones. Only downside of Yale is New Haven itself. Outside of the Yale campus, New Haven can be a little sketchy in some areas and I would advise caution when roaming.
view much nicer than Harvard and MIT, very worth stop over to take a look before heading to Boston
Yale is not just beautiful on the outside, it embodies the American intellectual experience! Those who are lucky to study here embrace the tradition of light and truth, brining forth the energy to build a better world.
Can be compared to Princeton University. Art style for even sport stadium. And it is not too big so it is easy to walk through the campus. However, no many places open during the pandemic. Maybe I will visit again to enjoy the shows there
