Craigie Arms is a historic apartment house at 2-6 University Road, 122 Mt. Auburn, and 6 Bennett Streets in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Located in Harvard Square, the Georgian Revival four story brick building was built in 1897 to meet local demand for apartment-style housing. The building occupies most of a city block along University Road, Mount Auburn Street, and Bennett Street, and is notable for its relatively modest decoration and the rounded corner projections.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
