DeWolfe Summer Housing

DeWolfe Street Apartments

A limited number of units at the DeWolfe Street Apartments are available for license to Harvard College undergraduate students during part of the summer.  These buildings are owned by Harvard University Housing (HUH), and leased to the College.


Students interested in living in DeWolfe summer housing must be a current Harvard College undergraduate student enrolled for the Spring 2019 and/or Fall 2019 term(s) and in good standing with the College.

Due to the limited number of spaces available, preference will be given to continuing as opposed to graduating students. 

Students who are currently studying abroad, on a leave of absence or who have been required to withdraw from the College must have submitted a fall returning student application by the prescribed deadline and received an affirmative vote from the Administrative Board (if applicable) to return for the Fall 2019 semester. Students requiring an Administrative Board vote to return are responsible for being in touch with their Dean to ensure this occurs prior to the license period below.

License Period

The DeWolfe summer housing license period is: Monday, June 10 - Friday, August 9, 2019.

Due to the unique college environment, including other activities/events occurring on campus and the need to prepare space prior to and after summer housing occupancy, the license period is non-negotiable. Students requiring housing outside of the dates of these dates must secure other off campus accommodations.  

Apartment Layout

Each apartment contains 2 bedrooms (2 beds each) and shared bathroom, living room, and kitchen facilities.  Each student is provided with a twin, extra-long bed and mattress, dresser, desk, desk chair, bookcase, floor lamp and closet space.  

Only apartments affiliated to Dunster (DU) House (10 DeWolfe, 4th, 5th & 6th floors), Leverett (LE) House (20 DeWolfe, 5th floor) & Quincy (QU) House (20 DeWolfe, 1st & 2nd floors) have furnished living rooms - all other apartments have unfurnished living rooms.  Furnished living rooms have a sofa, two upholstered chairs and a coffee table.
