The Office of the Provost invites emeriti faculty members to attend an annual luncheon held on the Medford campus. It provides an opportunity for you to visit the campus and stay connected with former colleagues. As part of the event, the provost offers remarks on the state of the university, highlighting accomplishments, activities, and developments at Tufts.

Emeriti faculty members from the Medford campus may request a parking permit without charge from the Office of the Provost to use when parking on the Medford campus. Contact (617) 627-3310 for more information. Please note that your parking permit is for your use only.

Emeriti faculty members from the Grafton campus may apply to Security on the Grafton Campus for a sticker, and the fee will be waived. Please note that your parking permit is for your use only.

The Boston Security Office does not issue Tufts parking permits to faculty, so parking privileges are not available on the Boston campus.
