Student Wages

Providing Meaningful Employment Opportunities Since 1957

Established in 1957, Harvard Student Agencies (HSA) is an entirely student-run company, employing over 650 undergraduates annually. We provide various goods and services with the high-touch customer service from individuals who understand the needs and expectations of undergraduate students. HSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, every single dollar we receive is invested back into providing undergraduate student wages and financial aid. 


Cleaners & Dorm Essentials is the company’s founding agency, and Harvard’s original start-up. CDE has provided dry-cleaning, and delivery laundry services to the Harvard community and greater Boston area for over 60 years. Every laundry bag requested for pick-up through our tracking app, Clothespin, is collected by our team of Harvard undergraduate Delivery Associates (DAs).


Our team of DAs work diligently six days a week collecting laundry, and then delivering them washed, dried, and folded year-round straight to your door. DAs pick-up and deliver across every corner of campus, from the Yard to the Upperclassmen Houses. Every year, CDE pays out over $100,000 in student wages to our Delivery and storefront Sales Associates. HSA itself pays over $1.7 million in undergraduate student wages annually. We appreciate every single customer who works with HSA in helping us provide meaningful student employment opportunities for over half a century.
