Housing

During Fall Clean-Up (Tuesday, August 15 - Monday, August 21)

During Fall Clean-Up you will be provided with temporary housing in one of the freshman dorms. You will enjoy the standard dorm amenities of an extra-long twin bed, a desk, a chair, and a dresser. Common bathrooms are located on each floor of the dorms. You must bring your own bed linens. 

On the morning of Monday, August 21, you will move out of your temporary housing and store all your belongings on a secure moving truck in Harvard Yard (this is why we must limit you to only one suitcase and one carry-on). After the work day on Monday, you will be able to move your belongings from the truck to your term-time suite.

Early Term-Time Move-In (Monday, August 21, 5:00pm)

At 5:00pm on Monday, August 21, you may move in to your term-time suite (this is one day earlier than the official first-year move-in). However, you may not choose your permanent bedroom until all of your roommates arrive on Tuesday, August 22. For this reason, it is highly recommended that your families do not arrive until Tuesday. Additionally, vehicles are only permitted in Harvard Yard on Tuesday; absolutely no vehicles will be permitted in the Yard on Monday evening. 

If you have further questions about term-time move-in, please contact the Freshman Dean's Office at fdo@fas.harvard.edu or (617) 495-1574.
