Notary Public

Yale Public Safety offers notary public services to the University. The notary public will verify your identity and must witness you signing the document(s).

Notary services are typically available in the Central ID Center located at 57 Lock Street, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday, excluding recess and holidays. Please note that notary services are dependent upon on the availability of the notary public. Walk-in service welcome.

What to bring

  • Please bring the ENTIRE document to our notary (not just the page you need notarized). PLEASE DO NOT SIGN YOUR DOCUMENTS UNTIL INSTRUCTED TO DO SO BY OUR NOTARY. If you have already signed your document, you will need to print a new copy to be properly (and legally) notarized.
  • A valid, government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, military ID).


  • The notary fee is complementary for all Yale students. Yale faculty, staff, and New Haven community member fee is $3.00 per document to be notarized. Payment accepted in the form of cash, check, COA or credit card (Master Card, Visa, Union Pay).

For any questions, contact the ID Center.
