  • Q. Due to COVID-19, what are the health and safety requirements for reunion?

    As of 3/17/2022:

    Tufts University is committed to promoting a safe campus environment for all members of our community and guests. In light of the ever-changing impact of the coronavirus variants, all activities conducted on our campuses must adhere to specific event guidelines, posted on the university's COVID-19 website.
     

    Visitors attending events on campus are required to be vaccinated and boosted (if eligible) and may be asked to show proof of vaccination or proof of a medical/religious exemption. 

    While the university has a robust testing protocol and strives to mitigate the risks of infection and community spread, it is impossible to eliminate these risks entirely, and all event participants must recognize that they assume these risks of their own volition.

    We hope that everyone will be understanding and embrace these guidelines in the spirit of Tufts' values as a caring community and one that believes strongly in civic responsibility.

  • Q. What are the health and safety requirements at Symphony Hall for Tufts Night at Pops on Friday, May 20, 2022?

    The Boston Symphony Orchestra policies require proof of vaccination for Tufts Night at Pops. Masks are also required to be worn at all times unless actively eating or drinking. Please review this page for the latest information and more details about their policies and FAQs.

  • Q: Can I come back to Reunion Weekend 2022 if I am not from a class ending in a 2 or 7?

    A: This year, given the larger than the usual number of classes invited for reunions, we anticipate space will be an issue and we will be unable to accommodate alumni or guests from non-reunion years (classes ending in 3, 4, 8, 9). We look forward to inviting you to return to campus for Homecoming this fall or for a reunion in 2023 or beyond. 

  • Q: If I choose to stay on campus, where will I be? What can I expect in my room?

    A: In past years, alumni housing has been available in Harleston Hall (formerly South Hall). While staying on campus offers the opportunity to relive your college days and enjoy a convenient location, on-campus housing is simple and will not come with the same amenities as a hotel room would. Though subject to change, you can plan that your room will be equipped with fresh bed linens and hand towels. Please note, on-campus accommodations do have shared bathrooms and no air conditioning or phones. It is suggested that guests of on-campus housing bring bath towels and an alarm clock. Cell phones are recommended. Due to fire safety policies, only one person is allowed in a single room, and only 2 people are allowed in a double room.  

  • Q: How will Tufts University accommodate alumni/ae who observe Shavuot, a holiday that falls during the June 3-5 dates for Reunions?

    A: Tufts University welcomes reunion alumni of all religions to observe their faith traditions while on campus. This June’s celebration coincides with Shavuot. The Tufts Office of Alumni Engagement is happy to work with any alumni wanting to observe their faith traditions while taking part in our activities. Please email reunionweekend@tufts.edu with any questions or needs.  

  • Q: How can I book a dorm room on campus?

    A: On campus dorm room accommodations are available to be book through the reunion weekend registration page. 

  • Q: Are children allowed at the Reunion Class parties?

    A: ​​​​​​​While pictures of your kids would be fun, actual kids might not be such a good idea. The Saturday night class party is 21+. If your child is of legal drinking age and you want to bring your grownup child as your guest, then go for it! If they are little tykes, it may be best they skip the Saturday class party. (Please do bring photos to show and tell!) They are welcome earlier in the day at lunch and the next day at brunch.

  • Q: I want to make sure there are a lot of people from my class. How do I do that?

    We want that too! One great way to help is by becoming a Reunion Volunteer. Each class has a group of volunteers that help encourage attendance for Reunion. They send e-mails, make calls, and reach out to friends via social media to help guarantee a good class turn out. If you're not sure you want to be a volunteer, you can still encourage friends by reaching out to your personal networks and sharing your Reunion enthusiasm on Facebook. The most important part of encouraging attendance is leading by example. If you register for Reunion, your friends are more likely to register for Reunion! To learn more about volunteering please email Alice.Shah@tufts.edu

Enter the garage at the ground level and walk toward the elevators, directly across from the Tufts University Police Department headquarters. Take the elevator to the 7th floor.
    • If you walk, turn right out of the subway station and follow College Avenue to the Powderhouse Square traffic circle. Cross Powderhouse Circle to continue on College Avenue. As you continue on College Avenue, the Tufts Campus will be on your left. Continue on College Avenue, passing Lower Campus Road, Talbot Avenue, and Professors Row (all of which will be on your left), until you reach the Memorial Steps (also on your left). Walk up the steps and bear right. Turn right after you pass East Hall and walk across the footbridge into Dowling Hall. The reception desk is straight ahead.
