Housing

Dunster Tower

Dunster House is home to approximately 400 residential undergraduate students and 25 residential staff between Dunster Proper, at 945 Memorial Drive, and Dunster-at-DeWolfe, at 10 DeWolfe Street.

DeWolfe housing, with its in-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes, is particularly popular with incoming sophomores, and each year houses roughly half the Dunster sophomore class.

Housing at Dunster Proper varies widely from stand-alone singles to a duplex 8-person suite, and everything in between. The diversity and modernity of Dunster's housing stock owes much to Dunster's having been the first Harvard House to undergo a complete renewal in 2015.  

All Harvard residential students must sign the Residential Community Compact  and abide by the University health and safety guidelines as a condition of housing for the fall 2020 semester.

Housing at Dunster is managed by the House Administrator who can be contacted with questions at dn-ha@fas.harvard.edu
