Wandering around this campus is such a nice morning or afternoon activity. You feel like you're in Hogwarts. The architecture is beautiful and the streets are just lovely to walk around. If you visit New Haven, I believe they give a nice tour as well.

We took the campus tour on a perfect fall day. It is not directed at potential students, but made me wish I was one! The buildings look like they belong at Oxford in England, or Hogwarts! I recommend it if you are in New Haven...More

I’ve been to New Haven a few times for swim meets, but this was the first time I went on an official tour. I was always a fan of Yale’s architecture. And I’ve only ever seen Yale’s buildings mixed in among the New Haven backdrop....More
