About Us

Founded in 1957, Cleaners & Dorm Essentials is the oldest of twelve businesses that form Harvard Student Agencies, the world's largest student-run business. Originally, the agency was comprised of several students selling dorm products out of their rooms. More than fifty years later, Cleaners & Dorm Essentials is now the go-to for dorm needs at Harvard.
