The Freshman Dean’s Office is responsible for all aspects of the first year at Harvard College as students make the transition from home and high school into a new and diverse community. Harvard is proud of its unique residential system, one which places freshmen in and around the Yard—the historic and geographic center of the College—and which provides them a close network of peers and advisers.


The FDO offers many opportunities for you to get to know your classmates, learn more about college life and to simply have fun.
