About New Haven

New Haven has been home to Yale University for nearly three centuries. As a center for business and a mecca for the arts, New Haven is recognized as a city of innovation, culture and prosperity. Approximately 20 square miles with nearly 130,000 residents, New Haven is conveniently located between Boston and New York. As Yale President Peter Salovey, a resident of New Haven for over 30 years, notes, “it is important to understand Yale’s continued strong relationship with the City of New Haven. The partnership between the city and the university is a great asset.”

New Haven is a great place to live, work, do business, and enjoy life. We hope this site will give you a sense of New Haven’s diverse offerings including culture, community and residential areas, and services.
