Thesis writers, students working in labs, international students, and members of 19 varsity sports team will likely be able to stay on campus during Harvard's Jan.4 through Jan. 24 J-Term—everyone else, probably not.
While exceptions will be made for certain cases and some clubs such as the Hasting Pudding Theatricals also may be allowed to stay on campus over the break, College officials do not plan on allowing more than 1,000 undergraduates to stay on campus over the nearly three week long gap, according to Interim Dean of Advising Programs Inge-Lise Ameer. Students who are allowed to stay on campus will eat in Annenberg. The application is scheduled to come out in the next few weeks and will be due in October.
The teams that will be allowed to stay on campus include basketball, swimming, and track.
