Getting Connected

You may be wondering how you can stay in touch with family and friends at home. You'll probably also want to call or email home as soon as you arrive, as your family will want to know that you have traveled safely to Yale. Here are some ways you can get connected immediately.

Internet & Communication


Voice & Video

Yale NetID

The Yale NetID is provided to most Yale students and scholars by their school or department. It allows access to the campus network and many University systems. Information Technology Services (ITS) at Yale can answer questions relating to NetIDs or Yale network connectivity.

If you're off campus and you need to log in with your NetID and password, you will need to dual authenticate with DUO Everywhere.

Getting Technology Help

For Students

The Student Technology Collaborative is a fully student-staffed support group that offers hardware and software support, equipment loans, and more to Yale students. Check out their resources for new students.

For Scholars

The ITS Help Desk is a technical support team that provides computing support services over the phone and via email.

Cell Phones

You have the option to buy a cell phone here in New Haven or use a Sim Card in your current phone. If you are uncertain about the best options, other students from your home country will be the best sources of advice.
