Welcome

FXB (fxb_dusk.jpg)Welcome to the Harvard School of Public Health located in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston, Massachusetts.

At HSPH each student and affiliate is responsible for finding his/her own housing.  There is no central housing office at the School of Public Health.  Shattuck International House, Vanderbilt Hall and Harvard University Housing are three Harvard-managed housing options for students.  Please see their links on the menu to the left.

If you’re already familiar with the area, you can get started by visiting the links to your left.  If you have never been to Boston, there are a couple of different resources we suggest you start with to help you familiarize yourself with the city from a distance:

  1. For information to help you get started on your housing search, visit our Housing Guide and the downloadable Housing Guide Supplement.  They are great resources to get you on the right track.
  2. For a helpful way to start learning more about the city of Boston check out these two great resources produced by the city government: Rental Housing Resource Center website & Boston 101:  Student Guide to City Services.  You will learn everything from how the renting process works, to where the local libraries are located.

Good luck with your search!
