Hello Harvard parents and welcome to our quirky student life blog. Have you been abandoned by your child even though you came all the way to Cambridge to see them?

Adams graphic 2024!

Adams House

With an ideal central location, a great community (with an unofficial acorn mascot) and newly renovated buildings, what’s not to love about Adams House? Normally composed of four residences — Westmorley Court, Randolph, Russell, Claverly Hall — Adams is one of the larger upperclassman houses on campus. Connected to House buildings by an underground tunnel, you won’t ever have to walk outside in the cold to go to breakfast! Yes, we may never beat the allegations that we don’t touch grass, but besides that, another fun fact (and flex) is that Adams House was once the home of the one and only Franklin D. Roosevelt!

Lowell graphic 2024!

Lowell House

In the bell tower of Lowell House, 17 bells ring weekly, ensuring that Harvard students never forget the House’s superiority. Besides the bells, Lowell House’s central location and proximity to every destination at Harvard (the MAC, the Yard, the Square, the River), as well as its recently renovated interior and close-knit tea-drinking community make the House very desirable. Claims that Lowell House is the best certainly seem to ring true.

Quincy House

Are you a person? Then you’ll love it in Quincy, a.k.a. “The People’s House!” With hot breakfast and a great community, you can’t go wrong. Read on to see why you’d be lucky to be sorted into Quincy!

Dunster House

If you’re looking for a house that has it all, look no further than Dunster House. With its iconic red brick towers, spacious suites, and moose-tastic mascot, Dunster is the ultimate river house. Not to mention, it’s one of the newest-looking houses on campus, thanks to its 2015 renovation that restored its gorgeous dark wood dining hall (that even puts Annenberg to shame!), library, and common spaces. Plus, it’s conveniently located between the Yard and the Science Engineering Complex, with a nearby Bluebike station and Harvard shuttle stop so that you can get to your classes in no time. Whether you’re into IMs, steins, or puns, Dunster has something for everyone.
