Program Details

Accommodations and Meals

Tufts students are housed during academic terms in single rooms within the college in one of Pembroke’s residence halls, which range from older, renovated buildings to modern ones. Accommodations include six dinners per week in the college dining hall. In addition, you will be provided with an allowance to meet the cost of other meals as well as basic living expenses.


Pembroke has a comprehensive orientation for new students which lasts several days before the beginning of the first term.

Student Activities

A wide variety of student clubs, teams, and societies are offered through Pembroke and Oxford. Tufts in Oxford also provides a 'Clubs & Societies' stipend to support membership in the Oxford Union and/or other student groups that require a membership fee. The Oxford Union is a student debating society that regularly brings prestigious speakers and guests (from the worlds of politics, music, science, etc.) to the University. Moreover, Tufts-in-Oxford students are encouraged to participate in optional subsidized day and weekend trips along with students in the Tufts-in-London program. Past locations have included Brighton, Stratford-upon-Avon, Edinburgh, Bath, Stonehenge, and Salisbury. Tufts-in-Oxford participants are also able to attend a selection of highly-subsidized cultural events and a special Thanksgiving dinner; these activities are in conjunction with the Tufts-in-London program.
