Logging In

Anyone with a HarvardKey can log into the calendar. Logging in allows users to follow departments, offices, and locations, express interest in events, and see private events.

Non-Harvard users can only view public-facing events on the calendar.

Event Submissions

All event submissions will be reviewed before they are posted. During the review process, submissions will be checked for spelling, clarity, conciseness, and appropriateness.  Please allow up to 3 business days for your event to be posted. Only events that are open to undergraduates will be approved.

The listing of events on this platform is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement or sponsorship of the content of such events.

For more questions on submitting events, visit the Calendar help page or contact the Harvard College Communications team with any questions.

Discovering Events

There are several ways to search for events in the calendar. You can browse the general list of upcoming events; filter by location, category, academic area, services, experiences; or search for a specific event, either by date or keyword(s).

Learn more about discovering events and other resources by visiting the Calendar help page.

Saving Events

Adding events to your personal calendar

On each event, there is an option to save to your personal calendar. Under the description of the event, click on “Add to calendar.”
