Harrison is a Metro-North New Haven Line station with a unique layout. A historic and now-unused red stone station house is located along Heineman Place near the intersection of Bruce Avenue above the station's wide platform area. This stone station house is now unused and boarded up with just some Metro-North information panels outside it. The building has a stone base with additional arches located at track level.

Just west of the station house is one end of the station's modern enclosed with glass walls pedestrian bridge. This bridge begins by crossing over the former two-tracks with an island platform station for the New York, Westchester, and Boston Railway that operated alongside the New Haven Line between 1927 and 1937. This former track area has been turned into a parking lot and also contains an office building south of the depot. The bridge then leads to the Grand Central-bound side platform before continuing over the 4 station tracks to the Connecticut-bound platform. An elevator and staircase lead down to each platform. The bridge structures are clad in brick, with bluegreen coloring on the steelwork.

A modern and small station house with a closed ticket office is located on the Grand Central-bound platform directly in front of the historic station. This building has bricks and an arch that look inspired by the historic station. Mosaic windows line a central copula structure in the station house and the top of the elevator shafts. These mosaics are part of Railroads and Rooftops by Tova Snyder, 2002.

The two station platforms begin just northeast of the overpass bridge of Harrison Avenue which has staircases down to the parking lot along each platform. Each platform has parking at ground-level with plenty of staircases and a ramp off each platform to the parking lot below. The Grand Central-bound platform is canopied from its southwestern end as far as the station house. There is a second enclosed shelter with a canopy outside of it towards the northeastern end of the platform. The Connecticut-bound platform has a slightly smaller section of canopy near the station's pedestrian bridge; there is a single enclosed shelter for waiting passengers in this area.
