Health Service

We are the primary health care site and offer walk in hours and appointments, depending on your students health care needs and busy schedule.  Office visits are covered through the Health and Wellness fee, and we have a lab on site as well as a pharmacy that delivers daily. 

You can read more about HIPAA, Confidentiality and Universal Consent here.

Counseling and Mental Health Service

Entering college is a significant milestone for students, one that reverberates throughout the family. Although each student, and each family, is unique, some issues commonly crop up for parents and families. We are here as a resource for Tufts students and caregivers and families who want to be sure their student has the best possible experience. If you are concerned about your student’s emotional well being, encourage them to come in to see one of our counselors. We do ask that students call to make their own appointments, however, rather than having you make one for them.
