Housing Resources

Student's attending the School of Medicine have options to live either on or off campus.

We offer 94 rooms of on-campus housing in Posner Hall, the Medical School dormitory. Many other students live in off-campus apartments that are a short walk or Public Transit ride away. 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.

Tufts University provides an Off-Campus Housing website for both the Boston Campus and the Medford/Somerville Campus as a free service to the Tufts community, and covers topics including rental listings, roommate searches, 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.

The Office of Admissions and Office of Student Affairs can assist you with general information about where students typically live and help get you in touch with a current student to ask housing questions. General 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.
