Off-Campus Living

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.

Off-campus accommodations

The Summer School does not have off-campus apartment accommodations. However, the Harvard University Housing Office presents a number of non-Harvard affiliated housing resources for prospective students looking to live off campus.

If you are a Secondary School student, please visit Housing for Secondary School Students to view off-campus living policies.

If you are interested in living on campus, please visit On-Campus Housing for more information.
