Yale University Press is a textbook and academic materials publishing company in New Haven Connecticut. Founded in 1908, it was once a department within Yale University but is currently considered a separate organization. The press was founded by George Parmly Day and is based in New Haven, Connecticut.  In addition to its roots in the United States, the company also operates an office in London that serves the international textbook market.

Yale University Press publishes about 300 new hardcover books and 150 new paperbacks every year. The company currently has about 6,000 books that are in circulation and are used by students, professors, and professional researchers in various fields. Many books have won awards, including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Texts are divided into several different series, including the Yale Drama Series, the Future of American Democracy Series, and the Lamar Series in Western History.

In addition to publishing materials, Yale University Press offers what it calls the Yale Publishing Course. This is a specialized course for professionals in the publishing industry to learn new ways of leading their companies, particularly with the increased global market of books as well as a need to publish more digital content. The course was formerly offered at Stanford University.
