About Us

The Harvard Shop is a subsidiary of the largest student-run corporation in the world, Harvard Student Agencies (HSA).

HSA is comprised of 14 different agencies, each headed by a group of student managers. The organization was founded in 1957 to help defray rising tuition costs while providing practical business experience and supplying valuable, necessary services to the Harvard community.

The Harvard Shop is HSA’s largest agency. HSA acquired The Harvard Shop in 2002, and there are now three retail locations located in Harvard Square, Cambridge: inside Harvard's Holyoke Center, at 52 JFK Street and at 65 Mt. Auburn Street. All profits are put back into the operations, and are used to continue funding employment opportunities for Harvard students.

It is with the support of customers like you that our organization is able to continue to grow. Thank you for supporting a student-run business!
