Virtual Tours

Harvard’s goal is to reduce the number of people on campus—including visitors—in order to slow the potential transmission of the virus and protect vulnerable populations from exposure. Therefore, all in-person public and private tours of Harvard University are discontinued until further notice.

Our actions are consistent with the recommendations of leading health officials on how to limit the spread of COVID-19. All members of the Harvard community are asked to help in this effort. For more information, please visit the Harvard Coronavirus website.

From Ann Radcliffe to Drew Faust, many women have contributed greatly to Harvard’s esteemed legacy.
