Harvard Students Spouses and Partners Association (HSSPA) is an entirely volunteer-run organization open to the spouses, partners and family members of all Harvard students, post-docs, visiting fellows and other affiliates.

Make new friends, find intellectual stimulation and feel a sense of belonging within the university. All members are encouraged to actively participate in any of the activities we have. 

HSSPA welcomes spouses and partners of all Harvard affiliates regardless of gender, race, age, nationality, and sexual orientation. We are a truly diverse group that includes people from all over the world. Membership is free. Our activities are sponsored by a portion of the investment income from the Anna P. Lowell fund (1930). HSSPA Financial Statements is publicly available. HSSPA’s by-Laws govern the activities of the association.

As a member, you will receive our newsletter containing up-to-date information on group meetings and activities of interest around the campus. 

HSSPA has an active Facebook Group that all members can join with lots of helpful information – search for “HSSPA” and request to join. Members are requested to abide by our drafted Facebook Guidelines.
