Off Campus Housing

Off Campus Housing refers to the private market housing which is in no way affiliated with Harvard University or Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Things to Consider When Looking for Off Campus Housing
50% of program participants reside off campus. When looking for off campus housing it is import to consider the following:

Location – You’ll be spending many late nights in studio. Be sure to take into consideration how far your apartment is from the school and if transportation is easily accessible.

Budget – Apartments in the Cambridge area can be costly. Take into consideration what amenities you absolutely need verses those you can live without.

Roommates – Do you want to share a room with another person?  If so, with who?  A GSD student or another Career Discovery participant? The GSD Housing Facebook Group is a great way to connect with other Harvard students looking for roommates, sublets, and rooms.
