History

  • Yale University was founded in 1701 in the Colony of Connecticut, and it is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States.
  • Originally the University was chartered as the Collegiate School and in 1718 was renamed Yale College to honour a gift from Elihu Yale, a governor of the British East India Company.
  • Yale’s history of including international students is a long one: the first international students arrived from Latin America in the 1830s. Today Yale welcomes the largest international community in its history, with a current enrollment of 2,049 international students from 114 countries.
