Found a room under the "currently available" section.
If you're doing HUH, you have two options:
1) The lottery / window selection
2) Looking at the "currently available" apartments at any time and choosing one you like. As soon as you select an apartment, you are no longer able to be a part of the lottery / window selection process, but you're also immediately sent the lease for the place you chose; that apartment is now yours. A couple days ago I found a good apartment on the currently available page, selected it that night, and received the lease in my inbox the next day.
It is somewhat terrifying to select an apartment without being able to see it, but I'm trusting floorplans, typical apartment photos, and Harvard's reputation as a landlord. Would not do this with an off campus apartment.
