Project Description

Lowell House, located on Holyoke Place facing Mount Auburn Street between Harvard Yard and the Charles River, is officially named after the prominent Lowell family, one of the Boston Brahmin families of New England. Designed by the firm of Coolidge Shepley Bulfinch and Abbott with a majestic neo-Georgian design and constructed in 1930 for $3,620,000, Lowell House was one of the first Houses built in realization of President Abbott Lawrence Lowell’s long-held dream of providing on-campus accommodations for every Harvard College student throughout his career at the College.

Beginning in June 2017, Lowell House will be the fifth House of twelve to receive an architectural redesign as part of Harvard’s ambitious, multiple decade $1 billion House renewal project.
