About Us

HSA Cleaners is a student-run business that has served the Harvard and Cambridge community for over 50 years. We offer efficient, high quality laundry and dry cleaning services at the best rates in Harvard Square.

How do we do it? We are a not-for-profit run by an incredibly committed group of hard-working Harvard students. We understand the needs of the Harvard community and take special care to meet those standards.

In addition to providing competitive on-campus jobs for students, we are active members of our surrounding community - we invite students to display art in our stores, sponsor student non-profit initiatives, and partner with many student organizations.

HSA Cleaners is a part of Harvard Student Agencies, the largest student-run company in the world employing over 500 undergraduates annually. Visit our website at hsa.net if you'd like to learn more!
