New Haven, just ten minutes away from campus, is a city where arts and cultural activities flourish and coexist with science and business.  Settled in 1638 and rich in history and heritage, New Haven is proud of its past, prouder of its present, and actively planning for its future.  The city is a manufacturing center, a deep water harbor, a major arts center, and a college town (with seven colleges and universities in the immediate area), and is often referred to as the “Gateway to New England”.  

New Haven is home to world-class, award-winning theaters such as the Shubert, the Long Wharf Theatre, and the Yale Rep; a variety of musical groups and organizations such as the New Haven Symphony Orchestra; and a number of renowned museums, including the Peabody Museum of Natural History, the Eli Whitney Museum, the Yale Center for British Art, and the oldest university gallery in the western hemisphere, the Yale Art Gallery.
