The Health Science Campus
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is located in the heart of the Tufts Health Sciences Campus in the Chinatown neighborhood of downtown Boston. We share the campus with several other Tufts biomedical science and professional schools and with Tufts Medical Center Hospital. Our Chinatown location provides a rich and unique atmosphere that adds to our environment.

Tufts offers a security escort service on all three Tufts campuses. The Boston campus offers this service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, between campus locations and to nearby T stops and parking garages. All students, staff and faculty are encouraged to utilize this service.
Provisions of the Jeanne Clery Campus Crime Disclosure Act of 1998, the Drug-Free School and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 afford the Department of Public Safety with an opportunity to annually distribute important safety information. The annual report explains services, policies, programs and expectations that help to contribute to achieving a safe and secure environment at Tufts University. It also provides campus crime statistics, health and legal information concerning drug and alcohol use, and information relating to fire safety.
You can view the current annual safety report online at Tufts Department of Public and Environmental Safety; you may also request a printed copy using the online request form or by visiting the University Police Station on your campus.
