Students enrolled in Summer Session courses (excluding Summer Session for High Schoolers, and International Programs) at Tufts University may reside in university housing on the Medford/Somerville campus. Residential housing is only available for students taking courses for credit: auditing status does not qualify for housing. Summer residence hall accommodations are available to both Tufts and visiting college students. Please contact the Tufts Conference & Events Services (CES) office to see what other accommodations may be available to you as an intern, graduate student, or professional/adult student.

Occupancy Period

Housing is available in 6-week increments covering both the First and Second Session. Details on exact move-in and move-out dates will be determined on registration.

Note to current Tufts undergraduates living on-campus during Spring 2017 who apply for summer housing (First Session / 12-week Session only): interim housing between the end of the spring term and start of summer courses may be available.
