You don’t have to live on-campus to take classes at Harvard this summer. You can find listings for off-campus housing online, in local newspapers, and by word of mouth. But be forewarned, housing in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and scarce.
The Summer School does not provide off-campus apartment listings, but the Harvard University Housing Office presents a number of non-Harvard affiliated resources for prospective students.
If you are a Secondary School student, please visit Housing for Secondary School Students to view off-campus living policies.
