Participants in the Yale for Life programs stay in the Yale College "Swing Space."
The fully air-conditioned Swing building, completed in August 1998, has approximately 100 two-bedroom suites available in the summer. Each suite contains two single bedrooms, a furnished living room, kitchenette and bath. Weekly linen and maid service is provided. The Swing building has two computer clusters, four seminar rooms, an exercise room, one large meeting room, TV room and laundry facility. And, it's only steps away from the world-class Payne Whitney Gymnasium at which participants receive complimentary memberships for the duration of the program.
The Yale for Life programs include all meals and refreshments, unless otherwise noted below. All breakfasts and lunches are served in one of the Residential College Dining Halls and in local venues near the classrooms.
Dinners vary with each program. Mind, Brain, and Society and Grand Strategy begin on Sunday evening, June 2nd, each with its own reception, dinner and opening seminar. On following weekday evenings, cocktails and dinner will be served at a tantalizing variety of campus locations and at some of New Haven’s finest restaurants. On some of these evenings, the groups will meet separately for programmatic activities, and on others, participants in the two classes will have the opportunity to share their experiences in the program. Program meals conclude with brunch on Saturday, June 8th.
Rome begins on Sunday evening, June 9th, with a reception, dinner and opening seminar. On each of the following evenings, participants enjoy programmatic activities as well as cocktails and dinner at a variety of fine dining venues at Yale and in New Haven. The program concludes with brunch on Saturday, June 15th. Those continuing on to Rome will leave that evening.
