Where to stay near Harvard University

About Harvard University

Devoted to excellence, Harvard University boasts one of the most impressive alumni portfolios on the planet. The private Ivy League research university has been stimulating bright minds since 1636, with a legacy of history, influence and immense wealth making it one of the world’s most prestigious education institutions. The university is anchored by Harvard Yard, a grassy space that’s strewn with students on a sunny day.

The campus extends a warm Massachusetts welcome to visitors, with the onsite Harvard Information Centre offering guests fantastic guided historical tours. These explore the university’s colourful past and spotlight some of its most iconic buildings like the neoclassical Widener Library. For cafes, bars, bookstores and great people watching, Harvard Square is a great place to spend an hour or two.

Harvard University is located in the city of Cambridge, just a stone’s throw from Boston. It is serviced by a handful of MBTA subway stations, with public buses also stopping nearby. From Boston city centre, the drive takes around 15 minutes. Some visitors prefer to stroll, with the walk taking just over one hour.

Beyond education, Harvard University is also a mecca for fine art. Housing the Fogg, Busch-Reisinger and Arthur M. Sackler collections, the curated Harvard Art Museums are a wonderful place to admire some of America’s finest masterpieces.
