The Harvard Innovation Labs has always been a hub for inventive thinking. Please work with us to maintain the connections that make our labs such a vital space. As we make changes to keep our community healthy, we’ll continually update this page with the latest information.

You can follow the latest updates on University-wide efforts to combat COVID-19 on the main Harvard Coronavirus Information website.

Please note: Our policies and procedures are subject to change depending on the circumstance. Please prepare for occasional adjustment to our policies.

All matriculated Harvard students who have a valid Harvard ID have access to the i-lab 24/7 with last entry available at 11pm daily. Masks are optional in the space. Food and drinks may be consumed anywhere except in our classroom.

For teams participating in our Venture Program:

  • For Harvard student team leads, please ensure you update your team member list regularly through this link so the security guard has the most up to date roster.
  • For non-Harvard team members, mention your name to the security guard who will check that you are on a Venture Program team. Once confirmed, the guard will direct you to check in through the iPad and will buzz you in.

Life Lab access is restricted to team members from full-time Life Lab ventures.

Experts, mentors, and other volunteers should work offsite and engage with teams remotely for the time being.

Tours are currently not being offered.

Programming and workshops are ongoing. Please consult our Events page for details on which sessions will be virtual, hybrid, or in-person.
