FAQs

  • Are there Harvard Campus Tours for visitors?

    Absolutely! There is no better way to really get the feel of Harvard than to join one of the campus tours. Tours are led by current undergraduates and provide a perspective on daily life on campus. Admissions tours last approximately an hour and a half, and those participating must check-in at the Visitor Center at least fifteen minutes prior to their scheduled event. Virtual tours are available for those that can't make it in person.
  • Where should I park when visiting Harvard?

    If public transportation is not an option, you may park in one of the four garages on campus. There is on-street parking and a limited number of metered stalls around Harvard Square as well, but are on a first come first serve basis. There are also privately-run parking garages around the square that visitors can go to. One-day parking passes can be obtained to park in the university garages.
