Reopening Fall 2020

Central Campus from the air

Last updated August 11, 2020

Yale University and all of us at the OISS are committed to supporting you during this global health crisis. We are truly in uncharted territory, but we will navigate through this together.

To the right you will see FAQs addressing specific Yale cohorts: continuing students, newly admitted students, scholars and department administrators.  Of particular importance is our webpage on Current Travel restrictions. These pages and FAQs are updated regularly given the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as state and federal policies. Any new arrivals to campus must review the Yale COVID-19 protocols, as well as the specific guidance from your host department or school.

Now more than ever, we need to watch out for each other and treat each other with respect. That is why, it is vital that we all act proactively and follow all health guidelines and observe social distancing to safeguard our own health and the well-being of those with whom we come in contact.

Best wishes to you and your families.
