Venue Options

Officers of ISOs and SSOs in good standing may reserve rooms in various on-campus venues.  These reservation privileges are non-transferable.  Therefore, non-Harvard organizations and individuals may not hold events on campus by using a student organization as a vehicle to stage an event on campus property or to reserve a campus room for a function (i.e. running a workshop about the organization or product, or hosting an event aimed exclusively at recruitment).   

See below for more information about specific on-campus venues available to student organizations and off-campus event locations commonly used by student groups.

Harvard affiliates are given priority when reserving the Cambridge Queen's Head pub.  Student organizations should place their request using the online request form

If student organizations have additional questions, they should contact cqh@harvard.edu.

Athletic Facilities

All athletic facility requests should go through Department of Athletics online system.   After the request has been placed, the events office will contact the requesting organization indicating whether the request has been approved or denied.  Student groups are advised that the athletic facilities tend to be booked up very far in advance.  It is important to place these requests as soon as possible with as many alternative dates and locations as possible.
