Academic Summer Programs

Tufts offers special packages including housing and dining to academic programs looking
to host their events in Boston. We cater to programs from as small as ten to
as large as three hundred participants or more.
Accommodations are available from early June to mid August.


Let us worry about housing all of your participants. We provide a variety of housing options from air conditioned suites to more traditional dormitory style living. All of our packages are custom made for groups of different sizes and needs. 

Tufts Catering serves the Tufts community on the Medford/Somerville campus. Faculty and staff are our most frequent customers but alumni, student organizations, parents and other friends of the University may also take advantage of our catering services for events on campus. Tufts Catering also offers individualized meal plans to suite the needs of every program. 



With 42,000 square feet, our brand new state-of-the-art fitness center features is available to our guests on campus. Participants will also have access to tennis and squash courts, pools, indoor and outdoor tracks, as well as dance studios. In addition, they will have in-library access to over 700,000 books, 3,000 periodical titles, in addition to media, micro forms, government publications, archival sources, and others.

The MBTA’s Red Line will take you from Davis Square to Park Street, home of the Boston Common and the Massachusetts Statehouse. A stroll down the block will lead you to the theater district, home to off-Broadway productions, or to vibrant Chinatown. If you head towards the harbor, you can visit the Boston Aquarium or explore the city’s seaport. Further north is (appropriately) the North End - Boston’s Little Italy where every doorway is an opportunity for an amazing meal and the best cannolis are filled with ricotta.
