Lounges

The Tufts AS&E GSC manages and operates two graduate student lounges on the Medford/Somerville campus. Both lounges are usually accessible 24 hours a day for all AS&E graduate students using their Tufts Graduate Student ID.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Curtis Hall will be open in Fall 2020 from Monday through Friday and you need to make a reservation to have access. Click here to reserve your workstation in the Curtis Hall Graduate Student Lounge.

Free printing service is provided in both lounges. Drinks and snacks are available for purchase for a very low fee. Any inquiries regarding lounge condition and lounge assistant positions should be directed to gsc-vicepresident@tufts.edu.
