The Office of Student Life embraces diversity and inclusion as fundamental to our community.

We are committed to doing so by:

  • Treating all persons with dignity and respect;
  • Supporting student academic, emotional and community needs;
  • Providing and connecting students to appropriate services and resources;
  • Working collaboratively with faculty and staff to elevate the student experience.

Office of Student Life (OSL) encompasses all aspects of the student experience and assists incoming students, current students and alumni with an array of services to meet their particular needs.  The office focuses on orientation, commencement, student life, student wellness and support, student accommodations and programming to foster a positive academic and social community. Additionally, OSL staff work with the Student Government Organization (SGO) and YSN student organizations to support their initiatives. We also offer programs and services to help students successfully transition to Yale; provide assistance as students navigate life/academic challenges as a graduate student; connect students to university resource centers and campus programs; partner students with other professional/graduate schools at Yale; and facilitate connections to organizations and opportunities in the New Haven community. We organize a variety of student programming.

From Orientation to Commencement, we are here to help you navigate your time at YSN. Whether you have questions about moving to the New Haven area, connecting to current students, learning about wellness, fitness opportunities and mental health support, getting involved in YSN student, Yale professional and graduate student community or greater New Haven community organizations, or finding community for you or your family, the Office of Student Life is here to help you make Yale a place you can call home.
