Visit and Connect

As a result of the public health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic, and consistent with the Yale University guidelines for meetings and events, we have suspended all campus visit programs until further notice. While we will not be available to host any on-campus visits or in-office appointments, our offices will be in full operation virtually. We are currently in the process of planning several virtual components to the admissions and recruitment process and will onboard those shortly. In the meantime, please explore our website at for further information and please contact us at or (203) 432-5360 for more information on how to connect with our office and to learn more about YDS. We look forward to connecting with you soon!

Plan a Campus Visit

Prospective students are warmly invited and encouraged to visit Yale Divinity School to get an up close and personal view of the YDS experience. Visiting the campus especially when classes are in session is the best way to learn about the programs, community life, resources and life at Yale University and the New Haven community. This is an important time to discern and explore the many ways that Yale Divinity School is preparing the next generation of leaders for church and world. 

Campus visits are offered Monday through Thursday beginning at 9:30 a.m. while classes are in session.  During the summer (May-August) visits begin at 10:00 am and are offered Monday through Thursday, with a reduced schedule as classes are not in session. We are flexible and will work your needs and schedule. During a visit, the general itinerary will include:

  • Information session with an Admissions Staff
  • Meeting with Career Services Office
  • Meeting with a representative from either Berkeley, Andover or ISM (If requested)
  • Meeting with our Financial Aid Officer
  • A Campus and Library Tour
  • Daily worship in beautiful Marquand Chapel 
  • Post Chapel coffee hour with faculty, staff and students
  • Class visits (offerings will vary by day/semester)
  • Lunch with a current student

Visits will wrap-up after lunch (about 1:30 p.m. or guests can have the option to extend your time and attend an approved afternoon class or an evening activity on campus (offerings will vary by day/semester)
