Harvard University Junior Family Weekend
March 24, 2022 - March 27, 2022
During First-Year and Junior Family Weekends, experience Harvard College through the eyes of your student. Participate in courses and engage in discussions with faculty, meet other families, receive valuable information and helpful resources for the student experience, and learn about all that Harvard has to offer.
Under current guidance, we are excited to welcome families of juniors to Cambridge, MA for this weekend! Please note that guidance around events open to the community could change and may impact our ability to hold this event in-person. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we finalize plans. We recommend paying attention to cancellation policies as you make your travel and lodging plans. Some programming will be recorded and available online for those who cannot travel to campus.
We have secured a limited number of special rate rooms for Harvard families at the following local hotels. Please book rooms directly with the individual hotels and note the dates by which you must reserve to take advantage of the special rates.

Outings and Innings
Outings & Innings is an internal Harvard service available to students that offers a variety of passes and tickets for purchase to local museums, movie theatres, seasonal attractions, and date-specific events at a discount. From the Zoo to the Museum of Science, O&I has curated a list of offerings to the city’s most popular destinations all in one easy to peruse location, and the best part is that the student can purchase for family and friends! If you and your family are looking for something to do locally during Junior Family Weekend, have your student sign up for an O&I account today and take advantage of this service. The student will visit outingsandinnings.harvard.edu and create an account using their HarvardKey login, and from there they will be able to browse, purchase, and have the passes mailed directly to your home or to them in Cambridge, MA. Orders are mailed out once weekly on Tuesdays, so we recommend planning ahead and purchasing now so you’re ready for Junior Family Weekend!
Please note, many locations have put into place new COVID-19 policies and requirements for entry in the last few weeks as well as new or temporary hours, and that these changes are being reevaluated daily. Be sure to check the venue’s website for the most up-to-date information prior to your purchase and visit.
