Important updates for summer 2021

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Harvard University has announced that summer 2021 will be online only. Harvard Summer School is not offering on-campus housing and dining with our efforts to de-densify campus. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community, on and off campus. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these unknowns together. 

Please contact our office at summerhousing@summer.harvard.edu if you have any housing-related questions. 

Dining Services

When you live in on-campus housing, you participate in the board plan and enjoy a comprehensive dining program during your session. Your board plan allows you to eat with peers in your designated dining hall and enjoy menus that reflect the international character of the Summer School. 

Daily Menu

Every day in your dining hall, you will find a core set of menu offerings – cereals, condiments, yogurts, fruit, grill items, salad bar selections, and beverages – as well as rotating hot entree, soup, and pasta selections so that you have a delectable range of options. Every meal includes vegetarian and vegan selections, as well as a balance between healthy and indulgent choices.

Special Diets

Harvard University Dining Services is committed to helping you with your dietary needs. Whether you have religious restrictions, a vegan or vegetarian diet, or simply need assistance with your food selections, your dining hall manager can provide the resources to help you make delicious choices, safely, and easily.

Food Allergies and Intolerances

If you have a dietary restriction, such as a food allergy or intolerance that requires an accommodation, please contact the Accessibility Services Office at (617) 998-9640 or email accessibility@extension.harvard.edu
