Health and Wellness

We are a diverse team of healthcare professionals who are passionate about providing comprehensive and integrative health and wellness care to help all undergraduate and graduate students enhance and maintain their physical, social and emotional health. We offer free, respectful and confidential primary medical care, mental health care, preventive services and health promotion to help our diverse student population achieve their goals inside and outside the classroom.  Through partnerships with other campus departments, student organizations and the community, we seek to enhance the health of the inclusive Tufts community and advocate for a respectful environment that enables healthy choices and fosters positive health decisions.  Student input and feedback is core to our mission.

Obtain a Student ID card with your Preferred (Common) Name

You now have the ability to obtain a Student ID card with your preferred (common) name! 

  1. Update your preferred name in SIS by clicking the pencil icon next to your name in the About Me tab. (Please note: preferred names can only be printed on Student ID cards if they contain alpha characters only.) Updating your preferred name in SIS will also update your name on class and grade rosters.
  2. If you are replacing an old Student ID card, contact Public Safety about your request for an updated Student ID card. (Incoming students requesting their first Tufts ID card do not need to contact Public Safety, but will have their preferred name appear on their ID card automatically.) 

There are a limited number of replacement IDs available at no charge for current students, and incoming students will never be charged for this service! Learn more about updating your name on your Student ID card.

As a reminder, you can also have your name updated for general communications at Tufts. (Your diploma records will remain as your legal name and, as of now, your Tufts User Name will not change).
