Parking on Commencement Day will be available in all university parking areas on a first-come, first-served basis. Dowling Garage levels 5–6 will be reserved for specific guests and those needing mobility access. Some parking areas will be reserved for support or emergency vehicles and equipment.

On May 27, there will be some overflow parking available on Packard Avenue in Somerville and on Boston Avenue in Medford, between Winthrop Street and College Avenue, where parking restrictions will not be enforced.

Be aware that parking is limited on campus and parking on all other public streets in Medford or Somerville requires a resident permit. Please help us be a good neighbor; don’t block neighborhood driveways, park in them, or request driveway access from local residents. For more information on where to park, see the Medford/Somerville campus map.


For additional parking information, please see the Tufts University Public Safety website.
