Dear Delegates and Faculty Advisors,

The sixty-fifth session of Harvard Model United Nations will be held from Thursday, January 25, to Sunday, January 28, 2018 in Boston's famous Back Bay neighborhood. Come January, more than 3,300 high school delegates and their faculty advisors will gather to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Together with our staff of over 200 Harvard University undergraduates, delegates will experience the challenges and thrills of international diplomacy by assuming the roles of UN representatives and other international decision-makers.

At our sixty-fourth session, delegations in attendance hailed from over 40 countries. From the high-level policy discussions in the Disarmament and International Security Committee to the fast-paced crisis breaks in the Constituent Assembly of Myanmar, delegates at our most recent session spent four days immersed in an exciting and realistic simulation of the United Nations. Application to HMUN 2018 will be available through our MUNbase system on May 1, 2017. I could not be more excited to bring the unparalleled level of substantive excellence that HMUN is renowned for to our sixty-fifth session!

Application for our sixty-fifth session is now open! Application information, along with other important dates and deadlines, can be found on the Information tab of our website. Our second Priority Application Deadline is on August 30, 2017, and we strongly encourage delegations to apply by this date. Admissions to HMUN are highly competitive, and delegations applying by August 30 increase their chances of acceptance.
