Adjusting to Your New Home

It can take some time and patience to adapt to a new home, a new school, or a new community. To help you prepare for some of these changes, read more about the topics below.

Once you arrive, you will have access to all of Yale’s offices and resources, student groups and activities, and New Haven events which will help you adjust to life on Yale’s campus. Participating in your school’s orientation program, as well as the OISS orientation program, will not only help answer your questions, but will also help you build your new community here at Yale.

If dependents will be joining you, be sure to share our resources with them and invite them to join our International Spouses & Partners at Yale (ISPY) community.

Remember that OISS and other offices at Yale are here to help you. You are not on your own. Feel free to reach out to us any time.
