Sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduates live in twelve residential Houses, nine of which are south of Harvard Yard along or near the Charles River. The other three are situated in a residential neighborhood half a mile northwest of the Yard at the Quadrangle, which previously housed Radcliffe College students until Radcliffe combined its residential system with Harvard.
