Health Insurance

Yale students who were enrolled in Yale College for the spring term immediately prior to the summer program in which they participate are covered through July 31.

Visiting students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents living on campus are required to provide evidence of hospitalization coverage through a U.S. health insurance provider. Students living off campus may use the Acute Care department at the Yale Health Center on a fee-for-service basis.

Any international student living on campus who we give an immigration document to (I-20) who is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and who does not have hospitalization insurance through a U.S. health insurance provider will be charged an additional fee by Yale Summer Session for health insurance.  Find out more about the health insurance coverage on the admitted students tab. Click on the "international students" tab.

Yale Health Center

Yale Health Center provides limited services to Summer Session students living on campus.

A mandatory health fee is charged to all non-Yale residential students, which is included in the total residential program cost. Coverage includes use of the 24 hour Acute Care department and the Inpatient Care department. If needed, other services are available on-site; however, these services are not covered, even if referred by a Yale Health Center clinician. This coverage does not replace hospitalization insurance, which all students must maintain, and does not include follow-up care.


Yale has the second largest university library in the United States, with over 10 million volumes housed in more than twenty libraries around campus. Sterling Memorial Library is the central library and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library has one of the world's largest and most valuable collections of rare books, letters, manuscripts, and first editions.

Guide to Using Yale's Libraries

Full library privileges are granted to all summer students. Fees may apply for certain services.

Office of International Students and Scholars

For International Students: Yale's Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) serves as a resource on immigration and other student concerns.

Public Safety

Yale is located in the heart of a vibrant urban city and with city living, it is important to take steps to stay safe. The police officers patrol our campus by foot, bicycle and in police vehicles 24/7.

The security staff provide safe escorts, and service for lock-outs. Students should use the after hours transportation options available for free with a Yale ID.

Resource Office on Disabilities

The Resource Office on Disabilities coordinates services for students with disabilities. If you need accomodations, we suggest that you contact the Resource Office as soon as you are admitted.
