See Yourself at Harvard

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 exploring our community through our virtual tour, online information sessions, by reaching out to current students, and by reading up on the Cambridge and Boston area.
