Housing Resources

We offer 94 rooms of on-campus housing in Posner Hall, the Medical School dormitory. Many other students live in off-campus apartments. To help you in your search for housing in the Boston area, we have provided the links below with information about local neighborhoods, housing trends, and options for finding off-campus housing.

The Office of Admissions and Office of Student Affairs can assist you with general information about where students typically live, help get you in touch with a current student to ask housing questions, or provide some help with a roommate search. Housing questions can be directed to med-housing@tufts.edu or 617-636-0893. Students who are part of the Public Health and Professions Degree Programs (MBS, MPH, MS, DrPH, PA) should visit the PHPD Housing Resources page.  

Although primarily focused on the Medford/Somerville campus, the School of Arts & Sciences maintains an Off-Campus Housing Resource Center as a free service to the Tufts community, and covers topics including rental listings and Massachusetts tenant rights. Since this site is also used by students on the Medford/Somerville campus, you may want to note that you are a medical student and focus your search on the areas closest to downtown Boston.
