About Student Services

Led by the Dean of Student Services, the Office of Student Services focuses on coordinating support, redesigning administrative practices, and leveraging technology to improve the student experience for Harvard College, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). Whether students need help enrolling in courses or have questions about registering for housing, our goal is to provide quick and efficient support. 

Whom We Serve

The Office of Student Services aligns the mission, function, and leadership of four interdependent units including the Disability Access Office (DAO), Housing Office, Office of Academic Integrity and Student Conduct (OAISC), and the Registrar's Office (FASRO). Harvard College students will continue to access support from all four offices. GSAS students will receive the same assistance from the Registrar's Office and the Accessible Education Office, and continue to access support from the GSAS Office of Student Services and the GSAS Office of Residential Life
