The southern portion of the University’s oldest campus, home to the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and the Fletcher School, falls within the city of Somerville. A small business and residential haven, the city is located just one and a half miles from Boston. The compact, vibrant community prides itself on its diversity — more than 50 different languages and 15 religions make up an important part of Somerville’s fabric. The City also boasts a collection of unique neighborhoods and squares, including Davis Square, recently ranked by the Utne Reader as one of the top 15 “hippest” neighborhoods in the country. Coffee shops, a theater, restaurants, music stores and clubs are among the many attractions in Davis Square, which is just a short walk from campus and a frequent destination for Tufts students.
Total Area: 4.22 square miles
