See Yourself at Harvard
Stroll through beautiful Harvard Yard, learn from enthusiastic students, and discover life in historic Cambridge, Massachusetts.

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.
