Accommodation & Facilities

Writers will live and dine in Ezra Stiles College during Summer 2020. Bedrooms are single occupancy but share a common living space and bathroom with writers of the same gender. Please bear in mind that even though it is a striking setting, it is a college dorm and not a hotel.  You may opt to stay in a local hotel.  All participants will enjoy breakfast, lunch and some dinners in one of the College dining halls. The food features organic and locally sourced selections and a wide variety of hot and cold choices at each meal.

Tobacco-Free Yale

There will be no designated smoking areas on our tobacco-free campus.

Yale University is a tobacco-free environment. On a tobacco free campus, smoking cigarettes, including e-cigarettes, and/or the use of tobacco products is prohibited in all areas including property leased or owned by the university.  University property includes, but is not limited to, our residential colleges and courtyards, classroom buildings, parking lots, paths, fields, sports/recreational areas, stadiums, facilities, and University vehicles regardless of location.

Early Arrival or Late Departure

For those staying in the dorm, you can arrive one day early or depart one day after the program is over. There is an additional charge per night.  Meals are not included.

YWW Office

We will have an office in Stiles College staffed during normal business hours.  If you have any questions or need help in any way during the Yale Writers' Workshop, please stop in.  A contact phone number will be available after your arrival.

Residential Counselors

For those writers staying in the residential college, we will have Yale students as Residential Counselors.  They are there to help you with any questions you have about dorm life or New Haven. The names and locations of your counselor will be available after your arrival.

Pin: Our writers have access to the entire Yale campus. This includes one of the world’s largest gymnasium as well as some of the country’s largest libraries. The Yale Art Gallery, including its recently renovated sculpture hall, was renowned architect Louis Khan’s first major commission; his last, the British Art Center, is directly across the street.
