Student Eligibility
Only active and full-time HSPH students are eligible for residency at Shattuck House.

Only members of the resident’s immediate family (spouse and/or children) may occupy the apartment without Harvard affiliation. Nursemaids, nannies, or relatives who perform babysitting or household duties are not permitted to share an apartment with the student and family.

  • If your immediate family plans to join you permanently at any time during the year, you must fill out co-occupant application form. Co-occupants must be approved by both Operations Office and Office for Student Affairs.
  • The eligibility policy applies to pre-established lease dates.

Please note that there is no daycare offered at Shattuck International House. For more information on family and daycare resources, please visit the Childcare at HarvardOpens in a new window.

Affiliate Eligibility

Affiliates are Harvard community members that include HSPH research fellows, post-docs, and visiting scholars. Applications from affiliates will be considered only if there are vacancies at Shattuck House. Historically speaking, availability for non-HSPH students (or affiliates) has been minimal. Shattuck House applications from affiliates are considered on a case-by-case basis and are determined by availability.
