Accommodation when visiting Harvard?
« on: January 14, 2005, 10:39:45 AM »
I'm heading to Cambridge in the spring, and had forgotten how darn expensive hotels are there.  I just don't feel like spending lots of $ checking out a law school, and I don't have my parents' budget, so I'm totally unfamiliar with the budget hotels.  I have friends I would stay with, but all of their theses are due around the days I'm going, and I am NOT going to inflict myself on them during that stressful time.  I've written to Harvard to ask for advice - do you think there's any chance there'll be some spare student accommodation?  Have any of you all been through this with other schools?

thanks :)

There really arn't any "budget" hotels in Cambridge, althou I've heard that the Hotel at MIT has the best rates in the area.  It's in Central Square, about 15-20 minute walk to Harvard Law School.

And you probably could find someone here who would put you up for the visit

Good luck

Ooo wow you should tell her that - I guarantee you a night on the couch.
 
I cannot find a cheap hotel.  This is very frustrating.  Stupid spring.

Actually, I have the same concern for stanford. since some of the ppl on this thread have been accepted to both, I figured I could quickly pop in and ask where the stanford visitors are staying in april.

Anyone?
