Hartfeld University is one of North America's most elite academic institutions. It is the primary setting of The Freshman series and The Sophomore series. The main characters of The Haunting of Braidwood Manor and Endless Summer are also Hartfeld students, while several characters in #LoveHacks are alumni of the college.

Hartfeld University may be specifically located in Massachusetts (in New England) or somewhere near it. At first, many thought it was located in New York City, but that was proven to be untrue when James Ashton's parents, who live in New York City, visited James at Hartfeld. Gabriela Vasquez is from Greenfield, Massachusetts, and James mentioned it was an hour away from Hartfeld, so it can be inferred that Hartfeld University is either in Massachusetts or Connecticut.

During the event in Endless Summer, Book 2, Chapter 14, it is revealed that Hartfeld was destroyed due to the events of Raan'losti and all the students and staff are presumed deceased.
