Cambridge & Boston

The Heart of the City

Harvard's campus traverses the Charles River from the heart of Cambridge to nearby Allston. A haven within the bustling city, Harvard Yard is the historic hub where nearly all first-years live and attend classes. Harvard Square is filled with one-of-a-kind shops, international restaurants, bookstores, cafés, and theaters. 

A comprehensive network of public transportation connects you to the neighborhoods of Boston: the winding streets of the North End, the iconic brownstones of Back Bay and the South End, and the museums and cultural attractions of Fenway. Buses and trains bring you to cozy seaside villages from Cape Cod to Maine, ski slopes, forests, and scores of local cultural venues and historic sites.
