Harvard University Housing (HUH) Construction Projects Update

March 19, 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and State of Emergency announced by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, the cities of Boston and Cambridge announced this week that all construction and renovation work is suspended until further notice.

In accordance with these directives, all construction, repair, and renovation activities in Harvard University Housing buildings will be suspended temporarily. Necessary crews will remain on job sites in compliance with the cities’ directives to secure all work areas and prepare them for this temporary work stoppage. Skeleton crews will continue to be present at job sites for the duration of the work suspension as required to monitor the sites and maintain their safety and security. The limited staff remaining on sites has been instructed to follow the CDC guidelines regarding hand washing, social distancing, monitoring their health, staying home if they don’t feel well, and avoiding all resident occupied areas.

This announcement will not impact property operations – please continue to contact the property management office for any related needs. Please contact the Harvard University Construction Mitigation Office if you have any questions or concerns throughout the shutdown at or 617-496-0857.

Accessibility: If during the above-mentioned activities, you have accessibility concerns or would like to request an accommodation due to disability or temporary impairment, please contact the Harvard University Construction Mitigation Office so they can assist you in coordination with University Disability Services.
