New Haven’s Dining Options


Even though New Haven is a great restaurant city, the Law School also has a dining hall, which serves a variety of meals for breakfast and lunch during the week. The dining hall is also the site for many catered events that are hosted by the Law School. The newly renovated dining hall serves as a convenient meeting place, a study hall, and a great place to pick up a cup of coffee between classes. Students can pay cash or sign up for a declining balance meal plan.

Dining Hall Hours


Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Friday, 8:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

New Haven & the Region


“Connecticut's second-largest city has risen from its ashes to become an arts mecca. . . . At the city's center stands tranquil New Haven Green, bordered by graceful colonial churches and Yale. Ethnic restaurants, theaters, museums, pubs and clubs dot the city." - Lonely Planet Guide to New England, 2009

We want you to think of Yale not just as the place you received your legal education, but as one of the places where you found your moral compass.”
