About Greater Boston

As an incoming Tufts student, scholar, or employee, you'll be introduced to the rich offerings of the Greater Boston area, which includes the city of Boston and surrounding towns such as Medford, Somerville, Cambridge, Brookline, Malden, Revere, Arlington, and others. The birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston is home to over 50 major universities and colleges and host to several major sports teams and events, including the Boston Marathon. The region boasts an extraordinary cultural and civic life. We encourage you to take advantage of the many cultural, recreational and other activities available to you during your time at Tufts.

Tufts has three campuses in the Greater Boston area - Medford / Somerville, Boston Health Sciences, and Boston Fenway (School of the Museum of Fine Arts). In addition, the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is in the town of North Grafton, which is easily reached from Boston by commuter rail and close to the city of Worcester, Massachusett's second largest city.
