Parties

Cabot House wants you to have a fun college experience. In our current, ever-changing environment, we have to follow college guidance regarding student gatherings. We will try to remain current with college & university guidance and hope to offer more options to students as soon as they become available.

As of the 2021-22 year, our policies will be drawn from this guidance: https://www.harvard.edu/coronavirus/campus-access/event-information/ 

Also remember that Cabot House is a community of people living in close-quarters, so we must work together and respect each other.

But first: please note these numbers & policies
