While most students spent the semester far from Harvard, some lived just outside its gates. Students seeking to recreate the campus experience signed on to short term rentals in Cambridge and surrounding areas, entering a housing market at the cusp of an eviction crisis. It’s part of  what one student calls “gentrification in rapid action” — and Harvard students are part of the problem. Presented by The Harvard Crimson. Written and reported by Maliya Ellis and Jane Li. Produced and edited by Kai McNamee. Podcast art by Kai McNamee and Yuen Ting Chow.
