Facilities General Information

The Tufts University Athletics facilities are open for use by the entire Tufts community. Tufts University students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to utilize the facilities for physical fitness, recreation and competition.

Tufts requires that all individuals, whether vaccinated or not, continue to wear masks indoors. This includes the use of athletic facilities.

The Department of Athletics works to provide as much free recreational time as possible, given the demands of intercollegiate varsity athletics, physical education courses, club sports, intramural sports, and special events.

We urge you to use the facilities as often as possible and to help us maintain them by adhering to the regulations stated below, treating the facilities as if they were your own and advising the security guards of the presence of unauthorized people on the premises.

For more information on the programs we offer , please visit the Physical Education web site.
