Obtaining an HUID & HarvardKey

The week of March 12, the GSD Registrar's office will provide you with your unique Harvard University ID (HUID) number and detailed instructions on:

    • creating your HarvardKey
    • uploading a digital photograph for the creation of your Harvard ID Card

Harvard ID Card

At the end of August, during the registration part of Orientation, all new students* will receive their photo identification card, provided their fall term bill has been paid, and a digital photo has been uploaded using the tool on the ID office website.

*Note: International students will also have to provide a check-in confirmation slip from the Harvard International Office (HIO) in order to receive their Harvard ID card.

GSD Email Account

In late April/early May, you will receive information about your Harvard email address. In the meantime, we will continue to communicate with you via the personal email you supplied in the application process.
