COVID-19 Resources for Students, Staff, and Faculty

HDS continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and the progress of the vaccination effort. As always, the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are of paramount importance. 

Students, staff, faculty, and affiliates must follow the return to campus procedures on the checklist. Test kits are available in the Rockefeller Hall Lobby from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday-Thursday. The closest drop off location for completed tests is Northwest Labs, southwest doors near the guard desk.

Student Resources

Harvard University Health Services has created student arrival protocols. Please consult the Return to Campus Testing Checklist (PDF).

The Offices of Student Life, Religious and Spiritual Life, and Career Services are working on-campus and remotely, and the areas in which they serve and support students are still functioning. Staff members are available to connect in person, via email, phone, or Zoom to retain our collective sense of connection and care.

Student events, community gatherings, practices, and services:

  • Reach out to Katie Caponera if you are interested creating an event. 
  • For spiritual gatherings, connect with Chaplain Kerry Maloney to explore creative and meaningful online methods for practice, gathering, and ritual. 
  • Connect with HDSSA if there are specific questions or ideas you have for community development. 

Academic, personal, and/or medical need:          

Stay connected with community updates, resources, and virtual event opportunities on the HDS Student Life, HDS Student Association, and HDS Religious and Spiritual Life Instagram accounts. Weekly updates will also be sent to current students through the HDS Community Bulletin and Office of Chaplain & RSL Email Digest.

The Office of Career Services will also continue to offer individual meetings to aid current students with job search strategies and career discernment. To request a meeting please send a note to careers@hds.harvard.edu and/or attend virtual events publicized via the HDS Career Connections newsletter. Updates can also be found on your homepage on the Hired Career Management and Jobs System.
