The Mead Visitor Center invites you to take a guided tour led by Yale College undergraduate students. Our student-led tours last approximately one hour and will depart rain or shine. Tours are free & open to the public.
Yale College students provide a glimpse into the history and architecture of the University. The tours start at the Yale Visitor Center at 149 Elm Street New Haven, CT 06511. Hear about Yale’s rich 300-year history and aspects of student life at several of Yale’s fourteen residential colleges. The tour also includes the Gothic Sterling Memorial Library, Yale’s largest, and the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Constructed with more than one hundred panels of translucent marble, the Beinecke is home to one of the world’s preeminent collections of rare materials, including the Gutenberg Bible.
Tours depart from the Visitor Center (149 Elm Street), cover the central campus area, and last approximately 1 hour (registration is required). https://visitorcenter.yale.edu/tours
