Pet Policies

Fish in an aquarium (not to exceed 50 gallons) are permitted at all HU Housing properties except Cronkhite Graduate Center. If you sign a lease for a pet-friendly apartment, you will need to complete a Pet Authorization and Policies Rider, whether you plan to bring a pet or not. View the sample policies rider that apply to properties/units designated as pet friendly. You can select “pet friendly” as one of your search criteria when viewing our properties and you can then see which units in that property are pet friendly. Or, view the entire list of Harvard University Housing pet-friendly units.
