Incoming HMS and HSDM Students

Incoming first year students who are enrolling in a full-time degree program at the Harvard Medical School, the School of Dental Medicine, or the Division of Medical Sciences will receive a housing application from their registrar in late April. Housing contracts are generally mailed out to applicants in June. Room assignments are made at random. Those with physical or medical conditions will be given special consideration. Generally, first year Medical and Dental students are guaranteed housing at Vanderbilt Hall provided they meet the deadlines printed on the applications and contracts. Incoming students admitted in May or later may need to be placed on a wait list, and rooms will be assigned as they become available.
