Let us know! We assist departments in finding new homes in our host communities for surplus items. We have a good idea of which local agencies are looking for useable PCs, functioning furniture, and other items.
Please contact us. It is important and beneficial to let the abutters know about campus activity that is going on in their neighborhood. Contact us and we will help get the word out to the proper neighbors. We can also help connect you to the proper city departments if they need to be informed.
Visit the Community Day website and email CommunityDay@tufts.edu. Let us know what you are working on and how you would like to participate. We hope to give neighbors the chance to see more faculty and departmental work each year.
We manage the Tufts Neighbors page, which lists campus events that are open to the public. If you would like your event listed, email CommunityRelations@tufts.edu with the name of the event, date/time, location, and url link to find more information. Community Relations also maintains up to date lists of a variety of community contacts, including local elected officials. We can help your department invite the appropriate community leaders to your event.
We will release your name and home address to the agency you donated to for gift acknowledgment purposes. If you do not want this information released for this purpose, you should initial the line at the bottom of the form to indicate so. If you have any other TCA related questions, please call x7-3780 or visit the TCA website.
Read our Community Reports to find out information about what Tufts does in its host communities. You will find information on financial contributions, volunteer work, partnerships with local agencies, programs offered to local students, and the benefits of being a neighbor.
Contact us, we want to know when our students are causing disturbances off campus. We handle all neighbor concerns – student related, noise disturbances, construction concerns, grounds issues, parking complaints, etc. Please contact us with any of your concerns. If the problem happens after hours and requires an immediate response, please call Tufts Public Safety at 617-627-3030.
Non-profits located in our host communities who are looking to hold an event/meeting on campus are allowed to use space on campus. There is no rental fee but some other charges may apply. For more information, see our page about use of campus space. If you are a for-profit entity or a non-profit outside one of our host communities, please contact the Tufts Conference Bureau.
The Tufts Neighborhood Service Fund (TNSF) is a giving option for members of the Tufts community during the Community Appeal. The fund is used to support our host communities and the important work being done by Tufts volunteers with community organizations in Medford, Somerville, Grafton and Boston’s Chinatown. Any proposal for projects or activities is welcome. Proposals are accepted from nonprofit agencies who serve one of our host communities and have a Tufts volunteer (this could be students, faculty and/or staff).
