With SHORT COURSES and WORKSHOPS running throughout the Summer!
Summer Session student housing for undergraduate students is in Hill Hall. Students should expect to have a roommate. The residence hall also has a common living room/recreation space, a laundry room with coin-operated washers and dryers, vending machines, and a common-area kitchenette. Air-conditioners and cooking appliances are not allowed.
Students enrolled in summer courses on the Medford/Somerville campus may reside in university housing on the Medford/Somerville campus. Enrollment must be for credit registration; audit enrollment does not qualify. Summer residence hall accomodations are available to Tufts and visiting college students.
Residents can move in to Hill Hall on Monday, May 22 (for First and 12-Week sessions), and Sunday, July 2 (for second session).
First session residents not continuing in the second summer session must vacate their room and Hill Hall by Saturday, July 1. Second session residents must vacate by Saturday, August 12.
Please note that campus housing is not available after August 12 for any reason. There is no on-campus storage between August 12 and the start of the fall semester.
Applications for the First Session and the 12-Week Session are due by April 24, 2017; applications for the Second Session are due by May 30, 2017. Applications received after April 24 or May 31, respectively, will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, if space is available.
Applications with payment info must be returned to Tufts Student Services in Dowling Hall after you register for summer courses. Applications will only be accepted after course registration is verified.
Specific housing assignments and information on furnishings, telephone services, and move-in logistics will be emailed. Please note that the Office of Residential Life and Learning assigns all summer housing. Mutual roommate requests will be honored on a space-available basis.
To apply, you will need your Tufts Username and password. If you are new to Tufts, you will acquire these credentials by applying for summer enrollment privileges.
Starting Monday, March 6, logon to the Tufts Student Information System, click on the "Student Living" tab, and select the "Webcenter" option. Press the Summer Housing link for an application.
There will be a $200 cancellation fee if your cancellation request is received after April 25 for the First Session (or 12-Week Session) or May 30 for the Second Session. If you cancel once the session has begun, you will be responsible for a prorated charge in addition to the $200 cancellation fee. If you want to cancel a housing request, you must put your cancellation in writing and submit it to the Office of Residential Life and Learning. Notice to any other university office is not sufficient.
Information about the residence hall and residence hall policies can be found online or students can contact the Office of Residential Life and Learning directly.
For current Tufts undergraduates living on-campus during Spring 2017 who apply for summer housing (First Session / 12-week Session only): interim housing between the end of the spring term and start of summer courses may be available. Go to ase.tufts.edu/reslife to review late-stay request information and submit a request.
A recent Bundesgymnasium graduate, Matthias decided to leave his home in Austria for six weeks and spend part of his summer studying international relations and economics at Tufts. He thought the summer before completing his zivildienst (year of public service) was the perfect time to try something new. Matthias saw the advantages of international study at a great American university before entering his "gap" year, and he knew that Tufts University had the summer courses he needed and could transfer to his home university, when the time comes.
