Yale traces its beginnings to "An Act for Liberty to Erect a Collegiate School", passed by the General Court of the Colony of Connecticut on October 9, 1701 in an effort toan institution to train ministerslay leadership for Connecticut. Soon thereafter, a group of ten Congregationalist ministers: Samuel Andrew, Thomas Buckingham, Israel Chauncy, Samuel Mather, James Noyes, James Pierpont, Abraham Pierson, Noadiah Russell, Joseph WebbTimothy Woodbridge, all of whom were alumni of Harvard, met in the study of Reverend Samuel Russell in Branford, Connecticut, to pool their books to form the school's first library. The group, led by James Pierpont, is now known as "The Founders".
Originally called the Collegiate School, the institution opened in the home of its first rector, Abraham Pierson, in Killingworth (now Clinton). The school moved to Saybrook,then Wethersfield. In 1718, the college moved to New Haven, Connecticut.
Meanwhile, a rift was forming at Harvard between its sixth president Increase Matherthe rest of the Harvard clergy, whom Mather viewed as increasingly liberal, ecclesiastically lax,overly broad in Church polity. The feud caused the Mathers to champion the success of the Collegiate School in the hope that it would maintain the Puritan religious orthodoxy in a way that Harvard had not.
In 1718, at the behest of either Rector Samuel Andrewthe colony's Governor Gurdon Saltonstall, Cotton Mather contacted a successful businessman in Wales named Elihu Yale to ask him for financial help in constructing a new building for the college. Through the persuasion of Jeremiah Dummer, Yale, who had made a fortune through trade while living in India as a representative of the East India Company, donated nine bales of goods, which were sold for more than ￡560, a substantial sum at the time. Yale also donated 417 booksa portrait of King George I. Cotton Mather suggested that the school change its name to Yale College in gratitude to its benefactor,to increase the chances that he would give the college another large donationbequest. Elihu Yale was away in India when the news of the school's name change reached his home in Wrexham, Wales, a trip from which he never returned. While he did ultimately leave his fortunes to the "Collegiate School within His Majesties Colony of Connecticot", the institution was never able to successfully lay claim to it.

Yale's central campus in downtown New Haven covers 260 acres (1.1 km2). An additional 500 acres (2.0 km2) includes the Yale golf coursenature preserves in rural ConnecticutHorse Island.
Yale is noted for its largely Collegiate Gothic campus as well as for several iconic modern buildings commonly discussed in architectural history survey courses: Louis Kahn's Yale Art GalleryCenter for British Art, Eero Saarinen's Ingalls RinkEzra StilesMorse Colleges,Paul Rudolph's Art & Architecture Building. Yale also ownshas restored many noteworthy 19th-century mansions along Hillhouse Avenue, which was considered the most beautiful street in America by Charles Dickens when he visited the United States in the 1840s.
Many of Yale's buildings were constructed in the Collegiate Gothic architecture style from 1917 to 1931, financed largely by Edward S. Harkness Stone sculpture built into the walls of the buildings portray contemporary college personalities such as a writer, an athlete, a tea-drinking socialite,a student who has fallen asleep while reading. Similarly, the decorative friezes on the buildings depict contemporary scenes such as policemen chasing a robberarresting a prostitute (on the wall of the Law School),a student relaxing with a mug of beera cigarette. The architect, James Gamble Rogers, faux-aged these buildings by splashing the walls with acid, deliberately breaking their leaded glass windowsrepairing them in the style of the Middle Ages,creating niches for decorative statuary but leaving them empty to simulate losstheft over the ages. In fact, the buildings merely simulate Middle Ages architecture, for though they appear to be constructed of solid stone blocks in the authentic manner, most actually have steel framing as was commonly used in 1930. One exception is Harkness Tower, 216 feet (66 m) tall, which was originally a free-standing stone structure. It was reinforced in 1964 to allow the installation of the Yale Memorial Carillon.

The college is, after normalization for institution size, the tenth-largest baccalaureate source of doctoral degree recipients in the United States,the largest such source within the Ivy League.
Yale's EnglishComparative Literature departments were part of the New Criticism movement. Of the New Critics, Robert Penn Warren, W.K. Wimsatt,Cleanth Brooks were all Yale faculty. Later, the Yale Comparative literature department became a center of American deconstruction. Jacques Derrida, the father of deconstruction, taught at the Department of Comparative Literature from the late seventies to mid-1980s. Several other Yale faculty members were also associated with deconstruction, forming the so-called "Yale School". These included Paul de Man who taught in the Departments of Comparative LiteratureFrench, J. Hillis Miller, Geoffrey Hartman (both taught in the Departments of EnglishComparative Literature),Harold Bloom (English), whose theoretical position was always somewhat specific,who ultimately took a very different path from the rest of this group. Yale's history department has also originated important intellectual trends. Historians C. Vann WoodwardDavid Brion Davis are credited with beginning in the 1960s1970s an important stream of southern historians; likewise, David Montgomery, a labor historian, advised many of the current generation of labor historians in the country. Yale's Music SchoolDepartment fostered the growth of Music Theory in the latter half of the 20th century. The Journal of Music Theory was founded there in 1957; Allen ForteDavid Lewin were influential teachersscholars.
Since summer 2010, Yale has also been host to Yale Publishing Course.

Yale has a system of 12 residential colleges, instituted in 1933 through a grant by Yale graduate Edward S. Harkness, who admired the college systems at OxfordCambridge. Each college has a Dean, Master, affiliated faculty,resident Fellows. Each college also features distinctive architecture, secluded courtyards, a commons room, meeting rooms/classrooms,a dining hall; in addition some have chapels, libraries, squash courts, pool tables, short order dining counters, cafes,darkrooms. Each college at Yale offers its own seminars, social events,Master's Teas,most of them are open to students from other residential colleges. However, Yale remains a unitary university, while OxfordCambridge colleges are self-governed charitable institutions in their own right.
All of Yale's 2,000 undergraduate courses are open to members of any college.
The dominant architecture of the residential colleges is Neo-Gothic, in line with the characteristic architecture of the university. Several colleges have other period architecture, such as GeorgianFederal,the two most recent (MorseEzra Stiles) have modernist concrete exteriors.
Students are assigned to a residential college in their freshman year. Only two residential colleges (SillimanTimothy Dwight) house freshmen. The majority of on-campus freshmen live on the "Old Campus", an extensive quadrangle formed by older buildings. Each residential college has its own dining hall, but students are permitted to eat in any residential college dining hallthe large dining facility called "Commons."
