Apply

To apply for a room at Blakeley Hall for the academic year 2020-2021, you must complete the Blakeley Housing Contract and fill out an online questionnaire. Please send the contract to the Resident Directors by May 10, 2020. (NOTE: please do not submit this application until you have confirmed your enrollment at The Fletcher School.) Your application is not considered complete until we have received both your contract and your response to the online questionnaire. If you are a single-semester exchange student, please download and fill out a contract for the Fall Term 2020 instead.

We strongly prefer that you email the contract to us as one three-page PDF. Please name the file “F/M_Last name_First name”, where “F/M” indicates gender.

If you cannot submit the contract by email, you can mail in your application to:

Blakeley RDs
The Fletcher School
160 Packard Avenue
Medford, MA 02155

You can also fax the forms to (617) 627-4028.

After May 1, we will conduct a housing lottery drawing, and will notify you by May 5 as to the status of your application to live at Blakeley. If you are offered a spot, you will have until May 12 to confirm your place in Blakeley by submitting a $400 room deposit (the deadline to withdraw without forfeiting your deposit is May 26). Please note we can only accept a check or wire transfer. Checks should be drawn on a U.S. bank and made out to “Trustees of Tufts College.”  If you prefer to wire the $400, please follow the instructions in this PDF.

Please note that, with the exception of one-semester exchange students and incoming Januarian students, residents normally commit to living in Blakeley Hall for the entire academic year. Additionally, priority for living in Blakeley Hall is given to those in our degree-seeking programs, with a very small number of rooms reserved for exchange students. Others affiliated with The Fletcher School, including visiting fellows, cannot normally reside in the dorm.  Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate every individual who applies for a room in Blakeley.
