Apartments Available

Until the HUH Applicant Portal opens in 2019, click here to view the list of available HUH units. This list will be updated Monday--Friday between 11:00-11:30 a.m. and 3:00-3:30 p.m. (except holidays).

If you want to select a unit, email HUH at leasing@harvard.edu and specify your selection by property, size, start date, and rent (limit: one unit). HUH will verify your eligibility. If you are approved, we will electronically deliver a lease package to you for your review, signature, and return with an initial rent payment. If you decide to decline the apartment after inspecting the documents, email us right away so we can relist the unit for selection by another applicant.

Rental of units will occur on a first-come-first-served basis, determined by the date and time our leasing office receives your email.  Units will not be held if you only are calling for more information about available units.
