The deadline to request on-campus housing and fulfill requirements has passed and we can no longer accept housing requests. College and adult students can see Off-Campus Living for suggested alternatives.
As a registered Summer School student, you may request to live in on-campus housing. Housing in Harvard College dorms and undergraduate Houses costs $4,950 for the seven-week session.
On-campus housing is not available to students enrolled only in Institute for English Language Programs part-time evening courses, mathematics for teaching courses (MATH S-302, S-318, and S-322), MCHU S-A, or GMAT S-1.
On-campus residential buildings have various configurations. All buildings are coed. Most buildings have suites, typically featuring a common room, two to four bedrooms, and a shared bathroom. Other buildings have rooms off a hallway with a shared bath. Some bedrooms have bunk beds. All rooms and bathrooms are single sex. Learn more about the rooms.
There are options for living off-campus.
You may submit a housing request online beginning March 4. Complete your request as early as possible, as housing is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to students who submit a request and meet all requirements. See Housing Request and Deadlines.
Your roommates come from the United States or abroad. Often, English-speaking students live with students whose native language is not English. Because getting to know new people is a valuable part of the Summer School experience, roommate requests cannot be honored. There is no housing for couples or families.
Harvard students serve as proctors
Harvard College students serve as resident proctors. Proctors live in the residences and are responsible for overseeing residential policies and providing guidance. See Resident Staff for more information.
