Ever wondered about Harvard's secret underground life? Although we weren’t allowed into the steam tunnels (turns out the 1000-degree steam is dangerous), Flyby took a tour of the HUDS food tunnels, beginning under the Leverett kitchen, wandering through Winthrop and Lowell, and ending below Kirkland and Eliot. Along the way, we took some snapshots. Enjoy!
Through the tunnels - The real steam tunnels—get here, you can get anywhere on campus underground.
On the other side - Hello, Winthrop. The dish return from the other side.
Ovens - You can fit an entire person in this oven!
Carts! - These carts were used to transport food from the main kitchen through the tunnels before each house had kitchens. Now they’re just waiting to be driven…
#TomBasRav - This is how the university makes soup—imagine this vat filled with TomBasRav.
