Q: How can I remove my information from Yalies?

Yalies only uses data that is already publicly available to Yale students—absolutely no protected information is revealed. NetIDs, UPIs, and emails come from the Yale Directory, and everything else comes from Yale Face Book.

Removing information from the Face Book and Yalies

Follow these instructions to remove certain data points from the Yale Face Book and Yalies.

Removing information from the Yale Directory

Because directory information is generally public record as a matter of FERPA policy, Yale does not have an interactive website that allows you to remove it. If you would like your information removed, Yale recommends that you contact [email protected] to request removal. Bear in mind this may prevent you from using some university services.

Q: How can I add a pronunciation for my name?

Yalies draws name pronunciations from NameCoach, a third-party company that Yale uses to provide name pronunciations, plus additional information like phonetic spelling and pronouns. You can provide this information to Yale by visiting Yale SIS and selecting "Personal Data" then "NameCoach".

Q: I can't log in to Yalies, how do I re-gain access?

You need to add yourself back to the directory of students at the Yale directory. You can do so in your Yale Hub account under the personal data tab, directory listing option.

  • Click the directory listing option in the left-hand menu of the Yale Hub.

    Add yourself to the directory in Yale Hub
  • Choose the first option to re-add yourself to the directory. Yalies.io will pick up the change on the next data update.
