This might sound silly but I come from a place where we would typically have to buy bottled water or boil tap water to drink, so now that I'm spending 5 weeks at a Yale dorm, is it safe to drink from the taps here (specifically in the dorms)?
Also, I don't see any bottled water station with 20 litre bottles and dispensers to drink from, so I assume the college expects the students to drink from the taps (I've read various sources that it's safe to drink from most US taps) or go out and buy a bottled water.
One thing I noticed is that it does taste a little bleachy, but that might just be me.
EDIT: The dorm's sinks themselves don't look too clean and also it is a collection of pretty old buildings (at least on the outside, the inside does look more modern though). Pipes that are not behind walls in some areas have been covered in paint, so it's hard to tell whether it's prone to lead leaks or not. Doubt I could carry out a lead concentration level test either.
