Relocation

Summary

Relocation & Logistics Management coordinates intra, inter-state and international moves, including:

  • Households
  • Labs
  • Campus moves

 

Local - Contract Movers and Rigging

Relocation and Logistics Management has contracts with local moving companies and riggers to handle any moving requests that can not be handled by TR&S.  Whether you need a laboratory, office or library moved, we have a mover that specializes in these areas. Contact diane.brown@yale.edu or thomas. e.schmidt@yale.edu.

Interstate - Household Goods and Laboratory Equipment

Yale University may elect to pay for the moving of household goods for newly recruited employees.  Payment for such expenses must be authorized at the unit level. However, not all newly recruited employees are guaranteed a relocation allowance. A moving allowance is at the discretion of the hiring department or business area. 

Each year Relocation and Logistics Management relocates an average of 250 faculty and staff from all over the world. The majority of our moves take place from April through September. Our office has negotiated contracts with reputable nationwide moving companies.

Interstate moving rates, otherwise known as tariff rates, are based on weight and distance. Our contracts provide Yale employee’s attractive discounts off of the tariff rates, specified dollar amount of free insurance and enhanced delivery schedules.

University Relocation Policy

Yale University - 103.4 Relocation Policy

A hiring department may cover full or partial relocation expenses for staff members who move a distance of more than 50 miles from the campus to within commuting distance of New Haven. The departmental business office and the Staffing and Career Development Department will work together with guidance from Yale Relocation and Logistics Management to assess and approve an appropriate relocation allowance. The staff member must move within one year from the date of hire for the relocation allowance to be considered a qualified moving expense. More comprehensive information about potential financial and logistical support for the relocation of a newly hired staff member, including procedures, general guidelines, covered expenses, and forms, can be acquired by calling the Yale Relocation & Logistics Office at 203 432-9961 diane.brown@yale.edu.

At the discretion of the hiring department, a staff member who is terminated or voluntarily resigns from the University with less than one year of service may be liable for repayment of the relocation cost.
