House Committee

The Kirkland House Committee (HoCo) is composed of dedicated Kirkland residents who work to maintain and develop the character and spirit of Kirkland House.  The House Committee's main task is to oversee House life and to serve as a forum for discussions on House-related issues in order to foster a better community for everyone.  We are also responsible for all House-wide events like Stein Clubs, the Holiday Dance, and our spring formal. Any Kirkland House student is welcome to attend HoCo's weekly meetings.  

HoCo Constitution: Read our HoCo constitution. (Adopted October 2017)

Contact: Feel free to contact us at!

Meetings: All Kirklanders are always welcome to attend HoCo meetings. See the House GCal or the Open List for HoCo's weekly meeting times and Zoom link.

Senior, Entryway J

I love how Kirkland embraces everyone and everything no matter how weird, quirky, or crazy it is. Boar dances in the dhall for Secret Santa, the Choosening every Sunday, and an undefeated track record of guarding the John Harvard statue on Housing Day are just some of the few things that make Kirkland, Kirkland. 

Aurora Avallone


Hello Kirkland House! My name is Aurora Avallone. I am a Junior, Class of 2024, living in the Prescotts this year. Kirkland House truly is the best House at Harvard because of our unparalleled community, where everyone cares for and shows up for one another, truly filled with K-House pride and spirit. I feel so lucky to be in Kirkland House and even more lucky to serve as your HoCo Co-Chair. Looking forward to a great year filled with the planning of formals, steins, and Secret Santa for the whole house to share in! Go K-House!
