Plan Your Visit to the Medford/Somerville Campus
In response to the evolving situation with COVID-19, Tufts University has made the difficult decision to suspend all on-campus events. As a result, we will not be holding any on-campus tours or information sessions until further notice.
Read more about the Massachusetts Travel Advisory here which places significant restrictions on visitors to the state from most of the US.
We encourage you to browse our Tufts Virtual Visit page to explore virtual resources and utilize our Virtual Visit Calendar to register for a virtual event. We are offering virtual information sessions, virtual guided tours, and opportunities to chat with a current student or an admissions officer.
The best way to get a sense of the Tufts undergraduate experience is to visit us!
Our Medford/Somerville campus – home to the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering – is located just five miles northwest of Boston and may be easily reached by car or public transportation.
Our Fenway campus, home to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts, is located in downtown Boston. If you're interested in learning more about the BFA or Combined Degree program with the SMFA, visit the Fenway Campus.

Admissions Office Hours:
Please note: Beginning 5/26/20 through 9/7/20, the Admissions Office will be open 8:00am - 4:00pm ET
Our campus is affectionately called "the Hill," but the hilly landscape means that the tours require navigation of steep inclines and stairs. If anyone in your party has difficulty with mobility, please include your needs in the registration form. We do have a wheelchair on-site should you need one. We are happy to work with you ahead of your visit to accommodate your needs; we may not be able to best accommodate you if not given proper notification.
You may call 617-627-3170 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strive to make your visit to Tufts University enjoyable.
When our Medford/Somerville or Fenway campus is closed due to severe weather or other emergencies, our tours and information sessions are canceled. You will find information about campus closings at www.tufts.edu or by calling the automated line at 617-627-4636.
