COVID-19 Guidelines for Tufts Admissions Visits
In-person campus visits are now available. The following policies are in place to protect the health of students, employees, and visitors. Please review the guidelines below so you know what to expect during your visit.
Tufts University is committed to promoting a safe campus environment and therefore requires all members of the university community to be vaccinated. Visitors attending admissions events on campus are required to be vaccinated and will be asked to show proof of vaccination upon arrival at the event.
Registration for a campus visit is required. If you arrive on campus and do not have a scheduled appointment, you will be directed to register for a self-guided tour.
Prior to Arrival on Campus
On the day of your visit, each visitor must complete the Tufts University Daily Health Status Survey prior to arrival. During check in, you will be required to show the post-survey confirmation email, along with proof of vaccination.
Arrival on Campus
Visitors to campus should park in Dowling Garage. Please plan to arrive 15-20 minutes before your scheduled tour time. This will allow ample time for you to park and walk to check in at the Dowling Hall lobby counter on the 7th floor. Be prepared to show the Daily Health Status survey confirmation email and proof of vaccination at check in.
Tour groups will be limited in size. Only registered guests will be permitted to participate in the tour. Tours are not permitted to enter campus buildings. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
Information Sessions will be limited to room capacity per session. Only registered guests will be permitted to participate in the session. No food or drink is allowed during the information session and face coverings must be worn at all times.
Outdoors: Face Coverings and Physical Distancing
Individuals who are fully vaccinated with a World Health Organization approved vaccine (defined as 14+ days after their second dose of a 2-dose series such Pfizer or Moderna, or 14+ days after a single-dose vaccine such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine) are not required to wear masks or physically distance outside. Individuals who feel more comfortable wearing a mask outdoors are encouraged to do so.
Indoors: Face Coverings
Tufts requires all individuals to continue to wear masks indoors. This allows for us to ensure the health and safety of our community during the visit experience. Visitors are expected to provide their own masks.
In-Person Admissions Staff Interactions
At this point, we cannot offer in-person 1-1 or small group Q&As between visitors and admissions staff. We are limiting these interactions in compliance with University policy to protect the Tufts community.
