Welcome to Tufts! Find the information and resources you need to get around Tufts campuses.

On the border of Medford and Somerville, Tufts University’s main campus (view campus map) is home to the School of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), School of Engineering, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life.

Transportation between the Boston SMFA Campus and the Medford/Somerville campus is available via Tufts Shuttles and the new Green Line Extension on the MBTA, opening later this summer.
