We invite you to visit Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies to learn more about the admission process, student life, and the campus community.
Three full day on-campus open houses are held during the fall term (September 21, October 12, and November 30, 2012), in addition to the many off-campus events we host. Opportunities will be given at these comprehensive events to interact with faculty, administration and current students. More information, including an RSVP form for on- and off-campus events, is available on our admission events website.
If you are unable to attend one of our full-day open houses, please contact the Office of Admissions by either email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (800-825-0330) to set up a one-on-one appointment with an Admissions Officer. We are happy to take in-person or phone appointments as schedules allow, and can help answer any questions you may have about F&ES. Appointment hours are available Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, but are unfortunately not available on the weekend. Please note that Admission Officer availability will decrease greatly after the December 15 deadline, due to the School’s holiday schedule and our admission file review process. In addition, admission appointments will not be available during February and March, so we advise you to plan ahead!
Sitting in on Classes
You are welcomed to sit in on classes of interest with no advance notice or permission. It is best to visit campus on a Monday through Thursday, as classes are not offered on Fridays. Please consult the class schedule, available here, to determine what may best work for your visit.
Although tours of the F&ES campus are not specifically available, prospective students are welcomed to visit Kroon Hall and Sage Hall at 195 and 205 Prospect Street during normal business hours. These two halls house many of our administrative and faculty offices and classrooms. We are very proud of Kroon Hall, our LEED Platinum certified building, and encourage you to stop by and pick up a white “Kroon Hall” pamphlet to learn more about what makes this building so special. If you have questions about Kroon Hall or any of our other buildings, please contact the Office of Admissions and we will direct you to the best source of information.
Tours of the greater Yale University campus are available through the Yale Visitor Center. Several options are available, included a “guided tour”, a “self-guided tour” and an “mp3 tour” depending on your interests and availability.
Getting to New Haven
If you have never been to New Haven, we encourage you to explore our great city! New Haven is an incredibly diverse city that is home to wonderful food, arts, shopping and parks.
Yale University has a Visitors Gateway website that will help you plan how to get here, and what to do while you are here. If you need additional advice about your trip, the Office of Admissions staff will be happy to answer your questions.
