Harvard Yard is the heart of Harvard University, one of the eight Ivy League Schools. It was built in 1718, making it the oldest part of the university. The yard is home to thirteen of the seventeen freshman dormitories, as well as four libraries.

Adjacent to Harvard Yard and pictured above, Harvard Square is the historic center of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The square functions as a commercial center for students with its clothing stores, coffee shops, and Harvard's main bookstore.
