Yale and New Haven are intimately connected and together offer a wealth of fun and affordable things to do on a grad student budget. Click on the links to below to learn about the abundance of cultural resources, various sports venues, incredible dining, and other activities that BBS students enjoy. With so much to do, New Haven is an attractive location for students, new faculty recruits, and young professionals.

But Can Students Afford to Live Here?

What good is a thriving city if one cannot afford to enjoy it? This question is especially relevant to students planning to attend universities in expensive metropolitan areas. In these regions, a student stipend can be stretched to its limit to afford basic necessities. Having money left over for concerts, restaurants, or any other city attractions may prove quite difficult. New Haven is comparatively less inexpensive, and the 2022-23 stipend of $40,000 enables students to afford apartments quite close to campus while still providing enough money to enjoy the many attractions at Yale and in New Haven.
