Cambridge Queen's Head Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Cambridge Queen's Head to help build community on campus by providing for the undergraduates of Harvard College:

  1. A dedicated social space;
  2. A performance venue for student acts and other undergraduate-initiated programming;
  3. Reasonably priced food and drink served at hours in tune with undergraduate schedules;
  4. Leadership and learning experiences in the running of a campus business; and
  5. A means by which to connect undergraduates to College traditions and the Harvard spirit.

To that end:

  • Food and drink service must serve to complement a comfortable and relaxed environment. Students must feel comfortable dropping in at the CQH at all times, regardless of any desire to a purchase or view a performance.
  • CQH must strive to build a broad sense of Harvard Community (inclusive of graduate students, teaching fellows, faculty, staff, and alumni) though never at the expense of the undergraduate identity of the space.
  • CQH must look and feel student-run. Undergraduates- overseen and supported by the General Manager and Graduate Managers- provide staffing, management, and programmatic decision-making.
  • Sales, catering, and facility rental should be secondary and used as necessary to advancing the CQH mission through:
    • Reinvesting of excess revenue into facility up-keep and improvements, subsidizing food costs, and supporting programming;
    • Providing management and business experience to the student staff; and
    • Furthering a sense of campus community, College traditions, and Harvard spirit.

The Cambridge Queen's Head operates as a part of Harvard College's Dean of Students Office.
