Become a Host for Thanksgiving!

In keeping with one of our favorite traditions, the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is seeking members of the Yale community who are willing to open their home on Thanksgiving to two or more of our international students/scholars. By registering to become a host, you can play an active role in helping our international community feel welcomed and a part of New Haven during this holiday season.

All hosts will receive the name(s) and contact information of their guest(s) after the matches have been made by Friday, November 22nd. If you have questions about becoming a host or want additional information, please contact Molly Hampton, Assistant Director of Programs, at

If you have room at your Thanksgiving table and can commit to hosting two or more students/scholars, please fill out our online host registration form below.
