In 1957, a group of Harvard students came together and invested in the model, “For students, by students." Since then, a small group of undergrads has grown this endeavor from makeshift businesses out of dorm rooms to Harvard Student Agencies (HSA), the largest student-run company in the world (yes, we were pre-Mark Zuckerberg!). Today, HSA is a non-profit company with 15 different agencies (of which The Harvard Shop is one!), 500 employees, and is still run by college students.
From high-quality glassware to bestselling t-shirts, each product is hand-selected by our team and packed and shipped to you by a Harvard student. Even the models you see on this website are all college students at Harvard!
Each design is crafted intentionally to complement the Harvard alumni, students, faculty, fans, and visitors we serve, capturing the classic essence of Harvard, its tradition, its history, and its timelessness. All profits go straight back into student wages and operations, so you know where your money is going, always.
A note from the manager:
"Thank you for supporting a student-run business and please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or suggestions! Again, welcome to The Harvard Shop!"
