Renting or Buying Space
If your project or program needs to occupy and use physical space abroad, it’s important that you consult with our office and the Office of General Counsel (OGC) early to ensure you proceed in accordance with both Harvard’s practices and the host country’s legal requirements.
Note that the University very rarely approves the purchase of real estate in other countries.
We can help you by reviewing the registration requirements for your proposed location and the administrative components of your proposal. Consult with us early in planning for your project, and we may be able to suggest solutions that can help you avoid unexpected costs and delays.
