Tisch Library

All summer students have access to the Tisch Library, which includes a collection of more than 850,000 volumes, 535,000 government publications, 102,000 maps, 990,000 microforms, 37,000 audiovisual items (including videocassettes, laser discs and recordings, and DVDs), and a growing collection of more than 300 electronic databases and 15,000 e-journals accessible to the Tufts summer community via the Internet.

Tufts ID Card is required to check out materials from a Tufts library. Library materials must be returned at the end of the summer term. Replacement costs will be assessed to students who do not return borrowed items.

The Tisch Library is air-conditioned, has large study areas with views of Boston, many study carrels with electrical connections for portable computers, media classrooms, viewing carrels, and photocopy facilities.

Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center provides one-to-one consultations year-round in writing support, time management & study strategies, and subject-area tutoring in math, sciences, languages, and more. Our tutors and consultants are friendly, trained undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to supporting your learning! We work with both undergraduate and graduate students in Arts & Sciences and Engineering, and sessions are free for all current Tufts AS&E students as well as visiting students enrolled in regular AS&E courses. Summer tutoring is limited due to tutor availability and only available on the Medford campus; currently we cannot support online-only classes, pre-college intensives, or non-AS&E programs. 

Tutoring appointments are made through Tutor Finder on SIS. If you have questions about tutoring or trouble accessing an appointment, please email For more information, visit the ARC website.

Student Accessibility Services

The Tufts University Office of Student Accessibility Services exists to provide accessible curricular and co-curricular environments for students with disabilities. When barriers exist in the academic environment or program, SAS endeavors to create equal access through the provision and creation of reasonable individualized accommodations for all qualified students. Through collaborative campus partnerships, SAS advocates for an inclusive and diverse Tufts community.

Accessibility services are available to visiting students in summer courses and programs. Students requesting SAS services must register with this office and request accommodations in advance of the start of the term or the class. Very important information about requesting services and learning accommodations can be viewed at the Student Accessibility Services website below.
