Congratulations on your admission to the Harvard School of Public Health! We look forward to helping you in your decision-making process and hope to see you on campus as an HSPH student.

In addition to information and resources posted on the HSPH website, my HSPH portal, and in the Official Catalog, we have highlighted some important materials for you in this website. Here you will find welcome letters, information about housing, and other materials relevant to matriculation at HSPH.

I would also like to highlight our upcoming Admitted Student Open House event on Friday, March 27th, 2015.  This event will provide important information about student life, organizations, financial services, and much more.  You will also have a chance to meet with your department/program and current students to get a deeper look into what HSPH has to offer.  I truly hope you will be able to attend!

We will update the website on a regular basis as new resources and materials become available to assist in your decision-making process. We realize that this site may not address all of your questions and concerns, so please do not hesitate to contact us at 617-432-1031 or Our goal is to provide the information needed for you to make the best decision.
