The Office of Student Services

The Office of Student Services is responsible for admissions procedures, funding, course registration, student life, special programs, and careers—interacting with students from the time they first become interested in studying at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design through graduation and beyond. There are many offices within Student Services, but everyone works together for the students. Whether exploring programs as a prospective student, participating in orientation, registering for courses, applying for financial aid, getting academic and personal support, planning your next professional moves, or getting ready for commencement, the Student Services suite is the one-stop shop.
