The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and serves the Yale community in New Haven, Connecticut. The News is independent of the university, both financially and editorially. Each day it publishes articles focusing on local, national and international news. It has a long history of coverage of campus and student life. It also has several annual and special issues celebrating the campus’ Indigenous, Black, Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in collaboration with the university’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.
The News is based in the 220 East 42nd Street building in Manhattan, an historic city landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, which served as the inspiration for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman movies. The News moved to its current location at 450 West 33rd Street (also known as 5 Manhattan West) in 1995.

We also feature a series of short videos that allow viewers to see their world from the perspective of people in it, providing unique insight into the complexity of social problems and the ways people try to overcome them.
