What is Dorm Crew?

Founded in 1951, Dorm Crew is a student employment and leadership program for undergraduates. Dorm Crew offers employment opportunities, leadership development, and mentoring resources to more than 800 students annually. During the term-time, Dorm Crew members are hired to clean the suite bathrooms of on-campus dorms. 


What Dorm Crew members say about their experience:

"Dorm Crew has not only provided me with a well pay job, but more importantly with a close-knit, supportive community of down to earth individuals with diverse backgrounds, interests and passions.”

“I originally joined when I heard the financial aspect of it, but I’ve found an amazing community of people in Dorm Crew! I met so many different kinds of people and grew close with them after clean-ups. I’m so happy I decided to do FCU my freshman year so I could be introduced to this organization!”

“Dorm Crew has strongly altered my perception of Harvard because I met humble, hard-working, incredibly nice people whom I never would have met if not for this experience. I think it greatly broadened my Harvard experience and I would not have enjoyed this school as much without it."

“I've really enjoyed it, I appreciate the flexibility and it has allowed me to meet a lot of like-minded students. I also think that it has given me an environment to help promote sustainability which is something that I strongly believe in.”
