Yale Wiki had a snafu with the web host a while back, and it was down for quiiiite a while.

Curious about What Happened? Or who runs the wiki?

You'll probably notice some things that are out of date. Help fix it?

Have a NetID? Then you already have a YaleWiki editor account :)

Water

  • You can drink New Haven tap water.
  • Lots of people also have Britas to filter water. Your college's Master's office might have filters for sale (if not, encourage them to sell them!)
  • Each entryway/basement also has a water dispenser that you can fill your bottle with (this is only true in certain colleges).
  • Dining halls all have water, although sometimes it's mixed with minute quantities of Powerade or Lemonade (they share the same outlet).
  • A few residential college gyms have water dispensers.

Trash

  • Yale recycling boxes everywhere. Single stream recycling introduced, so no need to sort.
  • Throw trash bags in trash rooms near Yale entryways.

Electricity

  • 110Volts.
  • American outlet type, internationals may need to bring an adapter.
