Welcome to the Residential Colleges Renovations Info Page

As Residential College buildings age, the Office of Facilities will perform renovations to part or all of selected colleges each year. Renovations will occur during the summer, and typically require all or part of selected colleges to be closed to staff, students, and summer programs.

Requesting Work

To submit a work request for refurbishment and repair work, please send a detailed email to facilitiessummerprojects@yale.edu. Requests for summer work must be submitted by March 21, 2018, after this date all requests must be submitted via a  Facilities Work Request.

Impact of Summer Renovations

Summer residential college Renovations fall under one of three levels of work:

Offline Renovation:

Every five years a college will go fully offline for the duration of the summer to undergo comprehensive renovation to interior, exterior, and infrastructure as required.

Partial Offline Renovation:

Dependent upon extent of work needed, a college may partially close for the summer to complete intervention work. These colleges would be available for partial utilization by summer programs.

Online Minor Refurbishment:

Based on need and requests, colleges may undergo minor “touch up” work, including painting and minor repairs. Colleges undergoing this type of work remain open and summer programs are not impacted.
