Yale University is a private Ivy League research university in New Haven, Conn. Founded in 1701, it is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 5,964 with a campus size of 373 acres. The Yale Police Department has primary responsibility for patrolling the Yale campus and in a supportive role to the New Haven Police Department as an extended patrol area. The historic Yale Bowl, with its Class of 1954 Field, is one of the true treasures in American sports.
