Applications for Harvard University Housing are accepted throughout the year, although most of our units are leased in the spring. Please read all the information carefully to maximize your chances of leasing a Harvard University Housing unit. Note that "Our Properties" contains information about all our properties; not just those that are available at any given time.
Security Warning: HUH applicants and residents. Do NOT share any personal information, including but not limited to Harvard University Housing login and password, offer letter, school acceptance letter and lease approval letter with anyone other than a member of the Harvard University Housing staff. This information is not required by potential applicants, residents, roommates, or subletters. If you get such a request from an email address with an extension other than harvard.edu, or if you are unsure about the validity of such a request, please call (617) 495-1459 or email the Leasing Office.
