Tufts is committed to providing all of its members with a safe campus. If you want to discuss a safety concern, contact the Tufts University Policy Department (TUPD) or refer to our Emergency Contact information. Added tips to keep safe include:

  • Be aware of your surroundings at all time - in particular, do not allow yourself to be distracted by your cell phone
  • Try to travel, especially at night, with others
  • If traveling alone at night, tell a friend or roommate where you are, where you are going, and your expected arrival time
  • Familiarize yourself with campus emergency "blue light" boxes (see photo to left for an example) which will put you in touch with a TUPD officer quickly
  • Guard your personal property (including laptops, cell phones, wallets, backpacks and bicycles) using these personal property safety suggestions from TUPD
  • Take care not to drink excessively, and never drive or operate a motor vehicle if you have consumed alcohol
