Campus Life

For reasons of health and safety, all 2021 Harvard Summer School courses and activities will be offered online. The feedback from our 2020 virtual programs from students and faculty was overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to another exciting and successful summer online in 2021.

The Harvard campus during the summer is an energetic, enriching environment. Whether you choose to live on campus, commute to class, or take advantage of digital resources as an online student, we have a range of resources for you. 


Living on campus is an enriching part of the Harvard Summer School experience. Visiting college students and adult students, as well as students in the Secondary School Program, have the option to live on campus in Cambridge. The Pre-College Program is a fully residential program.
