Summer Housing Information

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 summer occupancy period for 2021 would have been from June 12 through August 7. (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.)
