- Harvard Yard is the oldest part of Harvard University and consists of 25 acres of open space. Paved pathways cut through this grassy knoll where students frolic between classes, and during downtime, and visitors flock to admire the splendor of Harvard. Encompassed by dorms, libraries, classrooms, and faculty buildings. Harvard Yard acts as central point for the University. Tourists gather here for guided tours or simply to take a self-guided look at America's oldest University, often setting up a picnic of food purchased from one of the many Harvard Square options outside the gates.
