Housing & Dining
Off Campus Housing
There is currently no Tufts-owned on campus housing available to students on the Boston Health Sciences Campus. Most students live in privately owned, off campus housing a short walk away from campus or easily accessed via MBTA public transportation routes. Many of our students live with roommates, either fellow Tufts students or students in other area colleges, to help offset living expenses. 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.
