Before you get too excited about moving to Harvard University make sure that you are ready to move out with these few tips.
Harvard is a little different when comes to living on campus. Instead of a bunch of set residence halls Harvard offers a variety of housing arrangements and real estate services to find you a place to live around campus. They currently have 61 properties that you can take a look at and decide where you want to live. You can filter through the properties by city, style, rent pricing and other factors. Once you have decided on a property proceed to apply for Harvard University housing.
Regardless of the time of the year, Boston always has something going on! You and your new college friends will find a plethora of historical sites to visit through the aged city of Boston, from the Freedom Trail to the Paul Revere House. If you are more of the sporty type you can catch a game at Fenway Park or watch the Celtics play in the TD Garden.
Moving in Like a Pro
First-year students (and their parents/family members) tend to get a little frazzled on move-in day. As long as you’re prepared with a game plan, moving truck and helpers, then you won’t break too much of a sweat. Or if you want to make your life even easier you can ship your stuff to the dorms ahead of time with Collegeboxes®. Moving to Boston will be a breeze with the nearest U-Haul location to campus just a few minutes away. Now that’s how you move to campus!
