Public Transportation

If you are coming by subway, or “T,” take the Red Line to the Davis Square Station. Exit the Davis Square Station on the College Avenue side. You may take the #94 or #96 bus (which both leave from the Davis Square T entrance directly across from the Tedeschi convenience store, NOT the entrance next to the Somerville Theatre), walk 15 minutes along College Avenue to the Tufts campus, or take the Tufts Shuttle Bus.

  • If you board the bus, you will get off at the stop titled “Boston Avenue at Tufts Garage.” The bus stop is across the street from a large, seven-story parking garage. 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.
