On-campus Dining

The University offers many eating facilities on campus. The Dining Services manages the dining halls in the undergraduate students' houses (dormitories) and also manages a dining hall for graduate students in Lehman Hall (in the Harvard Yard) called the Dudley Café. They operate other small eateries throughout the campus. During University vacations the campus dining halls are closed. The Harkness Commons and the Harvard Business School Cafeteria are open to everyone.

Other meal alternatives on campus include:

  • Hillel House Hillel House serves kosher meals.
  • The Faculty Club Please check their website to determine if you are eligible. Although there is no fee you must complete a membership form at the Reception Desk in the Faculty Club lobby with your Harvard Officer's card.
  • The Cambridge Queen's Head The Cambridge Queens Head is a pub run by students for the Harvard community.

Meals are available in each of the 12 undergraduate Houses at Harvard; eating in a House offers an opportunity to meet undergraduate students. Meals may be purchased with cash. Prior permission from the House Dining Office may be necessary for dining. A limited number of graduate students and scholars may become affiliated with one of these Houses; each House will provide a meal plan. Contact the House Master for details about procedures for these affiliations.
