Campus Tours

Whether you want to explore campus from the comfort of your home or you’re ready to Cambridge, MA and see it for yourself, there are a number of options for touring the Harvard University campus.

Virtual Tours

In addition to exploring campus using the campus map, you can explore Harvard from home using our Virtual Tour. On this tour, you can discover spaces that aren’t included on in-person tours, such as classrooms, laboratories, and residence halls.

In-Person Tours

The official Harvard tour departs from the Harvard Information Center, in the Smith Campus Center. The tour is student-led and includes a walk through Harvard Yard, an overview of the University’s history, and a unique view on the student experience.

The one-hour tour is free, but you do need to register in advance. Visiting parties are limited to groups of 5. For groups of 6 or more, please contact the Harvard University Visitor Center to arrange a visit.

You can view the Harvard University visitors calendar for more details.

If you are interested in touring the campus on your own, you can go on a self-guided tour using the Visit Harvard mobile app, available to download on iOS and Android devices.
