Who We Are

The UC is a group of undergraduate students elected to represent students from all of Harvard’s many houses and yards. We bring all of our varied interests to the UC to create a council representative of Harvard’s incredibly diverse student body.

What We Do

We listen to students and address their concerns. We connect the gap between students and administrators.  We support student groups and sponsor house life.  We encourage events on campus and improve student life. We are here for the students. We are here for you. We are the UC.

How To Reach Us

  • Contact your representatives
  • Come to our meetings (Open to all!)*
  • Message us directly

*For meeting times and locations, see the calendar below.

Coming Up!

All UC meetings are open to undergraduate students. Each week, the Council convenes a General Meeting at 7 p.m. on Sunday to vote on legislation and to discuss matters affecting students. Questions and Comments Period, which occurs every week, is your chance to tell us what you think and to ask questions about what we’re doing! Since Spring 2016, UC Gen has been rotating locations to make it easier for students to show up. Stay tuned for the next meeting!

HUDS Endorsement

As the HUDS strike is beginning, we’re reaching out to publicly state our endorsement of the HUDS workers in their strike. The people who work in our Dining Halls- in the kitchen, in the servery, and swiping- make dining at Harvard possible and are an integral part of our community.

We are standing together with the HUDS team who slept in the dining halls during terrible winter storms to ensure we were fed, who remember our names and ask us how our days are going, and who always welcome us with a smile.

We hope that the University and the HUDS team will be able to reach an agreement, soon, so that they can come back to where they want to be- at work. Yet we recognize that in order for this to happen- the deal must be sustainable, fair, and equitable for HUDS workers supporting themselves and their families.

We may not all agree on every component of the arguments brought by the University or the strikers. Yet we can certainly all agree that without the HUDS workers, our houses and dining halls are incomplete. In order for the Harvard community to be complete, we believe all of its members need to feel equally valued and respected.

Regards,
The Harvard Undergraduate Council
