ABOUT HARVARD NEIGHBORS
Harvard Neighbors is a volunteer and membership organization that for over 100 years has worked to create a sense of community for the members of this large University.
Through a wide variety of activities, we help both newcomers and more established members to become acquainted with one another. Each year is filled with exciting events, such as the Oktoberfest Open House, a Wine and Dine evening led by one of our members, a Holiday Cheer party in December, a Hops Talk and Beer Tasting, Tea and Talks with featured speakers, and our Annual Meeting.
Our meeting space and offices are located at Loeb House, 17 Quincy Street in Cambridge. Our volunteers welcome and offer support to recent arrivals; we plan and host a variety of social events; and we offer special activities and social opportunities for people who share common interests. We can also help answer your questions about Harvard and the Boston Area.
Joining Harvard Neighbors will involve you with a group of friendly people from different areas of the University. We welcome and depend on volunteers' time and talents. Let us know if you would like to volunteer. You will be supporting our goal of keeping Harvard a welcoming and helpful place.
Membership is open to active and retired Harvard faculty and staff (including visiting scholar and researchers, post-doc fellows and program fellows) and their spouses or partners.
We look forward to meeting you!
