Moving to Tufts

Off-Campus Housing

Most students live within a three mile radius of the campus in the cities of Medford and Somerville, however some of our students choose to commute from  as far as our neighboring New England states!

The Office of Residential Life provides more information and resources for students seeking off-campus housing.

On-Campus Housing

All full-time first year graduate students are eligible to apply for transitional on-campus graduate student housing. Up to 36 rooms are available, and 9 of those rooms are designated for students whose permanent home addresses are outside of the United States or Canada. The 36 graduate student rooms are located in three buildings at the northern edge of campus off of Winthrop St, and the rooms designated for non-US or Canada students are dispersed throughout the three houses. Each resident has a common room or lounge and shared bathrooms. One small kitchen is available in each house and is shared with all of the occupants of each house.

Please note that Tufts cannot provide housing for couples or children.

Eligible graduate students may apply for housing through the Residential Life Office. Information on pricing and policies is available in the application.

Connect with Current Students

We also encourage students to post in the Enrolled Student Forum to connect with other graduate students and discuss housing before coming to campus. Once you have enrolled at Tufts, you can login with your Universal Tufts Login Name (UTLN) and password provided to you by Tufts Technology Services.
