Community & Events

The Graduate Commons Program (GCP) is the community and events team at Harvard University Housing. Our interdisciplinary program provides a “home away from home” for Harvard graduate students, faculty, post-docs, staff, and their families living in HUH properties. We build community and bridges for our residents through meaningful events and authentic interactions.
