Harvard University Tour

Tour Harvard University from a professional: a student!

Harvard University offers free guided historical tours of Harvard’s campus throughout the summer and sometimes during the school year.

These tours are always student-led and depart from the Harvard Information Center.

About one-hour long and composed of an outdoor walk, the tour offers general information about Harvard as well as a detailed history of the university. They are all from the unique perspective of a Harvard student.

Unless you have a group of 15 or more, no pre-registration for the tour is required.

For groups of 15 or more, the university offers private tours for a reasonable fee. It is based on the number of visitors in the group and should be scheduled no later than two weeks in advance.

If you’re looking for a quieter, more personalized tour that fits with your own schedule, the Harvard Information Center sells tour pamphlets in nine different languages, audio files, and a mobile app tour that allow you to create your own self-guided walking tour.

For prospective students or visitors who wish to learn more about student life at Harvard, the Harvard Admissions Office offers a guided tour of the undergraduate campus with focus on the Harvard Yard.
