Alert: Important Update
In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Admissions & Financial Aid Office staff are working remotely until further notice. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community, on and off campus. Therefore, our offices are closed but our main phone lines and email are operative during normal business hours (9 AM to 5 PM EST). No information sessions or campus tours will be offered at this time. Visitas, our admitted students weekend, will be held virtually.

See Yourself at Harvard
Stroll through beautiful Harvard Yard, learn from enthusiastic students, and discover life in historic Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Information Sessions and Campus Tours Cancelled
We have been closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and preparing to do our part to keep our community and our visitors healthy and safe. Therefore, it is out of an abundance of caution that we have decided to close our Visitor Center and suspend information sessions and campus tours through May 2020. We encourage you to take our interactive virtual tour, in which you can explore residence halls, libraries, laboratories, dining halls, and more.
Harvard may be the oldest college in the country, but it's certainly not a museum. Our community's spirit and exuberance are alive in every corner of the campus, and we can't wait to show you what makes Harvard a school like no other.
We encourage prospective students to learn more about Harvard College by attending an information session and campus tour. You can also explore our campus through our virtual tour.
Other Ways to Visit Campus
Student guides lead you through the places they live and learn, including dorm rooms, classrooms, Widener Library, the first-year dining hall and more.
