The Houses

The Houses serve as the foundation for the undergraduate experience at Harvard College. Ninety-eight percent of all undergraduates live in one of the twelve residential Houses.  Each House accommodates 350-500 students with its own dining hall, common rooms, and facilities for academic, recreational, and cultural activities.

Dudley Community

The Dudley Community serves a variety of undergraduate upper-level students from across campus not residing in one of the Houses. This includes: residents of the Dudley Co-op, Visiting Undergraduate Students (VUS) from other universities, and students residing off-campus. Like the Houses, Dudley offers holistic academic advising and support and has facilities, amenities, and programming targeted toward the unique Dudley population.
