Facilities for People with Disabilities
Harvard University has made a substantial commitment to making all of its programs and facilities accessible to disabled students, especially those with visual or mobility problems. With very few exceptions, the buildings at Harvard Law School and most of Harvard University’s essential buildings are accessible to students with mobility impairments. Applicants who have special needs addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act are asked to notify the Program office at least three weeks before the Program begins.
Participants make their own living arrangements while attending courses. Participants might find it easiest to stay at a hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lodging is not available on campus.
We strongly recommend making reservations as early as possible, as space is limited and hotel space sells out quickly in the Harvard Square area. The PON office does not make hotel reservations for participants.
