Life in New Haven

Enjoy New Haven- Big City Life on a Graduate Student Budget

We can't cover everything great about life in New Haven here, so we try to provide you with links to the essential New Haven websites and tips for graduate students and families.

Halfway between Boston and New York City, New Haven offers great places to live in varied neighborhoods, a wide range of social, cultural, arts, and recreational opportunities: award-winning theaters, world class museums and galleries, exciting nightlife at clubs and pubs, diverse restaurants, cafes, and markets, wonderful parks and recreational areas, public schools nationally recognized for their reform efforts, and great shopping with national chains and local specialty stores. You and your family and friends can explore and get involved in your city, with many events for free or at graduate student discounts!
