Harvard's Schools and Departments

Harvard may conjure up images of the ivy-covered walls and grassy quads of our Cambridge campus, but our 11 schools, multiple allied institutions, and a presence in 16 countries reaches well beyond the banks of Charles River.

Our three campuses in the greater Boston area make up our primary locations. Best known is our Cambridge campus with its green spaces, walled gardens, intricate brick walkways, and landmark buildings. Nearby Harvard Square is a lively complement to the sophisticated urban setting.

The Cambridge campus includes:

In addition, many of the central administrative units that provide support across the university are located in Cambridge, among them Alumni Affairs & Development, Offices of the Executive Vice President, Office of the General Counsel and Harvard Public Affairs & Communications.

Just across the river is our expanding Allston campus—the heart of which is Harvard Business School, historic Harvard Stadium and the Harvard Innovation Labs. In the coming years, Allston will also be home to new science and engineering facilities.

A few miles further into Boston is the Longwood Campus, an international center for biomedical research and medical education that is home to Harvard Medical SchoolHarvard Dental School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
