Summer Housing

UPDATE: April 1, 2020

Due to the impacts of Covid-19, the CSWR apartments will be closed for the Summer 2020 session.  No summer housing will be provided at the CSWR, and applicants are encouraged to look elsewhere for housing needs.  (Please note: If you are signed up for the HDS Summer Language Program [SLP], courses are only being offered online.  For more information, please see the SLP website.)

If you have any questions about summer housing, please contact Matthew Whitacre at




Summer Housing

The CSWR apartments are available for rent during the summer by anyone with a Harvard affiliation.

Applications for summer residence are generally accepted towards the end of March and apartments are assigned on a first come, first served basis as soon as the apartment availability becomes known.

Summer occupancy typically runs from mid-June through early August. For example, the occupancy period for 2020 is June 13 through August 10. (Note: the departure date is firm and cannot be extended.) Summer occupants must pay for this entire eight-week period, regardless of their actual arrival and departure dates.

Rates: The rates for the summer occupancy period for 2020 are listed below:

  • Studio: $3,580.00
  • One-bedroom: $4,360.00
  • Two-bedroom: $5,389.00
  • Three-bedroom: $7,320.00

(Please note that for the two- and three-bedroom apartments we can assist you with finding a roommate(s) to help reduce the rent.)

Those interested in summer residence should fill out a summer housing application form or contact Matthew Whitacre for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: We are ONLY accepting emailed applications for the 2020 Summer Period.
