Yale Plans For Biggest Expansion In Decades

5 posts in this topic

Yale University is moving forward with plans to build two residential colleges, an expansion that could create the largest increase in the student body since the Ivy League college began admitting women in 1969.

The new colleges would allow Yale to ease crowding and increase its undergraduate enrollment to about 6,000 students, up 12 to 13 percent from 5,300. Faculty would be added, Levin said.

I guess this is good stuff. I think that pretty much anything yale does is good for NH. its not like the school is going to build something tacky looking, and with the other development going on in the city its not going to erode the tax base any great length to tear down some bad area. Especially of the downtown highrises happen as planned.

Yale has done a lot for NH to make the place attractive for students to come to. This expansion should be yet another good thing for downtown, the city overall, and the state.

Without Yale, New Haven would be Bridgeport. This is awesome for the city.

trustees have approved plans

Yale President Richard Levin announced Saturday that the Yale Corporation has authorized creating two new residential colleges that will increase student enrollment by 15 percent to nearly 7,000.

not sure how much this will change NH, but the new students surely have to bring many service jobs with them as well as professorships etc.
