The Scoop


When the Knot Has Been Tied

For Thompson as well as James K. McGlinchey ’25 and Dylan A. Pancoast ’23, Harvard was not the first stop after high school. All three served in the military for six to eight years before coming to Harvard, during which time they got married. All three currently live off campus, away from the hustle and bustle of house life.  In fact, the Harvard College Handbook states that the university “does not offer undergraduate housing in the Houses or dorms to married undergraduates and/or undergraduates with families.” Since 98% of all Harvard undergraduates live in the Houses, living off campus makes these married students clear outliers.
