Summer Residence Hall

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.

Questions? Please contact Residential Life or 617-627-3248.


Students enrolled in Summer Session courses (excluding Summer Session for High Schoolers, and International Programs) at Tufts University may reside in university housing on the Medford/Somerville campus. Enrollment must be for credit registration; audit enrollment does not qualify. Summer residence hall accommodations are available to Tufts and visiting college students.

If you are not enrolled in a course, please contact our Conference & Events Services office to see what accommodations are available to you. Note that Tufts offers housing to Interns, Graduate Students, and Adults as well.

Occupancy Period

Housing is available in 6-week increments covering both the First and Second Session. Details on exact move-in and move-out dates will be determined on registration.

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 to review late-stay request information and submit a request.


Prices for Summer 2018 are still to be determined. For reference, each 6-week session in Summer 2017 had a charge of $906.

There will be a cancellation fee if your cancellation request is received after the application due date has passed. If you cancel once the session has begun, you will be responsible for a prorated charge in addition to the 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.
