House Renewal Projects

House Renewal Projects 
Harvard University is continuing with its River House Renewal Program re-configuring the interior spaces to meet the complex needs of today’s students, relieve overcrowding, improve privacy, and comply with current building codes.  The renovations will also enhance program spaces to better support students’ academic and social development and upgrade outdated building systems and infrastructure.
