Leasing, Purchasing & Hiring Overseas

Leasing Space Outside the U.S.

Leasing space for Yale programs or student housing must be coordinated with the Office of General Counsel and the Yale Risk Manager. Any proposed location should be fully reviewed by a Yale representative using a Yale health and safety checklist.

It is less likely that Yale would purchase real property outside the U.S., and to do so would require approval of the Yale Corporation.

University employees should not lease or purchase real property used to conduct Yale activities in their own name; to do so, circumvents Yale policies and procedures designed to protect the institution and its students and employees and may subject the individual to personal liability.
