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, degree-seeking Harvard students who have a valid Harvard ID have access to the i-lab with last entry available at 11pm daily. Masks are optional in the space.

For teams participating in our Membership 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 in our membership program. 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 and mentors are welcome to visit the i-lab to host office hours and/or meet with i-lab ventures. Please let a member of our team know that you’re stopping by and check in with security on arrival.

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.

All advising sessions and expert meetings are virtual. Book office hours here.

The i-lab is a focused co-working environment that is designed for adult use. To maintain our culture of respect for everyone using the space, children may enter only under special circumstances, such as an unforeseen lack of childcare or an event that has been specified as open to families. When in the i-lab, children must be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian. Please contact with any questions.
