The Harvard Ombuds Office Welcomes You!


The Harvard Ombuds Office is an independent, neutral and confidential place for visitors to discuss their academic and workplace issues and concerns. Our office is informal, assures confidentiality, and is independent of University administration.  We are open to all members of the Harvard community, welcoming over 400 visitors each year. There are two sites from which our Ombuds serve the Harvard communities of Cambridge and the Longwood Medical Area.

For our affiliates in Central Administration and schools and units outside of LMA, please email, or call 617-495-7748 to connect with the Cambridge Harvard Ombuds Office. If you are a member of the Harvard Medical School community and affiliated hospitals, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, please visit: to connect with Ombuds services through the HMS office.
