Despite initial fears, alumni and affiliates who experienced living through past renovation projects expressed optimism surrounding House culture — saying that they were able to preserve their Houses’ long-standing traditions, culture, and spirit.

Expert Witness Says Northrop’s Lack of Summer Contact Was ‘Typical’ for University Case Workers

Carrie E. Landa, Boston University’s executive director for student wellbeing, testified on Thursday that Harvard Counseling and Mental Health Services employee Melanie G. Northrop’s lack of contact with Luke Z. Tang ’18 over the summer was “typical” for university case workers.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Leverett House

With the uncertainty of Housing Day upon us, the question of where you’ll next call “home” may weigh on your mind. To offer some reassurance, let me introduce Leverett (affectionately referred to as Lev), your potential future house. With spacious rooms, staff that feels like family, and an involved community of bunnies, Lev can truly and easily become “home” for you.

Mather House

Welcome to Mather House! The Concrete Jungle. Huge singles. Lots of windows. Great people. The stomping grounds of both Conan O’Brian and Cornel West. Or, as HoCo co-chair Anna G. Dean ’25 would say, “Crazy lit movie.” In addition to its quirky exterior, its culture, community and atmosphere makes Mather House a Mather Home.

Winthrop House

Lions Gotta Eat! If you’re lucky enough to be sorted into Winthrop House, get excited for weekly paw-ffice hours, fierce intramural competition, and house-wide trivia nights. Winthrop boasts an impressive list of alumni, including President John F. Kennedy ‘40, actor B.J. Novak ‘01, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, Class of 1925. Yes, that Oppenheimer. With renovations and prime housing options that make Winthrop feel like a high-end hotel, Winthropians live in luxury. There’s no shortage of ThropLove at this River House!

Kirkland House

Those unfamiliar with Harvard may think of a famous whole-sale retailer when they hear the name “Kirkland,” but to most on campus, the name is synonymous with fun, heart, and most importantly, community.

Eliot House

On the corner of Memorial Drive and JFK, the established Domus de Eliot (a.k.a. Eliot House) stands tall. Arguably having the best community on campus, the Mastodons sport red, white, and blue with undying devotion to their green-domed home. If you simply love living life, this may be the house for you!

Cabot House

Welcome to Cabot House (no, the library didn’t magically become a House)! It’s a special home located in the Quad where walking in the d-hall in pajamas is the norm. From special events on Quad Lawn to the Quad-wide events (there’s a secret underground tunnel?!) Cabot welcomes all freshmen with open fins!

Currier House

On top of being the only House named after a woman (#gofeminism!), Currier also boasts a spacious courtyard, suites with balconies, solariums, and an art room, making it truly one-of-a-kind. And while you may be worried about potentially being far away from all the Harvard Square action, just know that everyone in the Quad (and even some folks down by the River) commute to Currier for one thing: a taste of the objectively best food on campus. So, in reality, as part of the “Tree” community, you have a chance to be at the heart of Harvard!
