Housing Request & Deadlines
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.
To be eligible for housing:
- Submit your housing request in online services beginning March 4.
- Be registered in eligible course(s).
- Secondary School Program and Secondary School Intensive English Language Program students must be enrolled in 8 credits. See Secondary School Program Admitted Students for specific requirements.
- All other students must be enrolled in at least one eligible course. 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 are not eligible.
- Submit full payment of tuition, room and board, and all other fees. See Tuition, Fees, and Payment.
Meet all requirements early, but no later than Monday, May 20
On-campus housing is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to students who submit a request and meet all requirements. If you do not meet all requirements by May 20 (or before if all spaces are filled with eligible students before this date), you will no longer be eligible for housing and your request will be canceled by the Summer School.
Complete these requirements as soon as possible to ensure all materials are processed by May 20. The Summer School cannot predict when housing will fill.
Harvard Summer School cannot honor building, room, or roommate requests. There is no housing for couples or families.
Students with disabilities
To be considered for a housing accommodation, submit both a request for accommodation form and documentation of your disability to the disability services coordinator as early as possible, but no later than May 20. See Disability Services.
Housing will be assigned to eligible students who submit full payment of tuition, housing, and all other fees by the housing request deadline of May 20, or before that date if all the spaces are filled earlier. We expect to begin releasing housing assignments on June 11. After June 11, you will receive an e-mail directing you to check your assignment by logging into online services.
If you live on campus, you must comply with Massachusetts and Harvard University immunization requirements and submit Form IM by Tuesday, May 24.
Housing cancellation and refunds
You may cancel your housing request (via online services) through Thursday, June 27. After this date you must submit a signed course registration changes and Summer School housing cancellation form to the Housing Office. E-mail and telephone requests are not accepted. No other method of notification, including failure to move in or verbal notification, is accepted.
Secondary School Program students: if you wish to cancel housing but remain enrolled in courses, you must submit a written cancellation request to the SSP office for approval.
Room and board charges are refunded in full if you cancel your housing request by May 20. If you cancel housing after May 20, the amount of your refund depends on the date your cancellation is submitted online or received at the Summer School offices at 51 Brattle Street. If you drop or withdraw from all Summer School courses, you are no longer eligible for housing (see course changes and withdrawals).
