Leverett House reopened today for its residents after undergoing massive renovations this past year. It wasn’t so long ago, though, that Leverett House underwent changes of a different variety. Back in the fall of 2002, Lev was the first Harvard house to offer its residents wireless internet. (Hey, ‘90s kids, remember when you needed cords and plugs to “surf the net”? Remember when people still called it “surfing the net”?)
Leverett House Resident Dean Lauren E. Brandt ’01 will serve as the interim assistant dean in the Secretary of the Administrative Board’s office.
The Victorian house will be converted into temporary lodgings for the house masters whose residences are scheduled to undergo renovation during the House Renewal process.
Leverett House next year will feature the freshly renovated McKinlock Hall.
Construction continues outside of Leverett’s House McKinlock Hall.
As the newly released plans for the Dunster House renewal take shape and construction on Leverett’s McKinlock Hall continues to progress, University President Drew G. Faust said on Tuesday that Harvard’s focus for House Renewal, at least for the time being, remains on the river.
If there was a student who could master the art of balancing courses, extracurriculars, and a social life better than the rest, it was Angela R. Mathew ’15, her friends remember.
This year, rumor has it that Leverett Dining Hall has rebranded itself as “Bistro Lev” due to Cambridge zoning laws which currently classify it as an assembly/residence. While we can’t speak to the truth of this, we know for certain that Harvard’s food scene has irrevocably changed.
If you weren't on campus last year and feel like you're returning to a strange new world of over-emphasized collaboration policies and construction sites, you might have a few questions about what happened here at Harvard during the 2012-2013 school year. Flyby's here to answer them for you.
Workers talk near and walk through a Mill Street entrance to Old Leverett at around 6:30 p.m. Friday. Temperatures were still around 90 degrees in the area as they wrapped up the day's electrical and demolition work.
On a day in which temperatures hit 99 degrees in Boston, workers were out in full force Friday at Harvard’s Old Quincy and Old Leverett buildings.
Old Leverett House stands amid construction on June 27. The renovation of McKinlock Hall has been underway since immediately after Commencement, according to Faculty of Arts and Sciences spokesperson Colin Manning.
