Where Is Harvard University Located?

Harvard University is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The private learning institution is known for the Harvard Business School, which occupies a 40-acre campus that's not in Cambridge; it's actually in Boston, Massachusetts.

With a main campus lying along the Charles River, Harvard University isn't far from Boston, only a few miles, and it's just northeast of Worcester.

The Ivy League school's proximity to Harvard Square has made the area something of a hallowed ground in Cambridge. Harvard Square and the oldest part of Harvard University's campus, namely, the historic Harvard Yard, are two must-see destinations for tourists visiting the Boston area.
