So you just moved into your shoebox of a dorm and you’re thinking to yourself: there must be more. We know exactly how you feel. Sure, some of you might still be excited enough to ~romanticize~ your dorm, but trust us, give or take a month and you too will be agitated by the fact that there is no air conditioning to relieve you from the sweltering heat of Cambridge summer. The good news is, no matter what your rooming situation is, with the right attitude and a little bit of (amazing) advice you can and absolutely will have a blast living in your Harvard dorm.
So you got accepted into Harvard but can’t make it to Visitas? You’ve got nothing to worry about! There are tons of amazing resources out there that will help you get a better idea of what life at Harvard looks like. Coming from someone whose first time on campus was quite literally her move-in day, here are a few things I found useful.
