Campus & Community


In addition to a supportive, collaborative academic environment, Sackler students have another advantage: Boston. Sackler's campus is squarely located in the center of this culture-rich city, whose attractions draw tourists from all over the world. Based in the heart of downtown Boston's Chinatown/Theater district, we're only a few-minute walk from the beautiful Boston Common, shopping and nightlife, and the start of the historical Freedom Trail. Our campus is also home to three other Tufts graduate schools, as well as Tufts Medical Center and the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, adding to the diversity of our community.

From academic resources, to fitness facilities, to local restaurants and historic sites, our campus and community offer a vibrant setting in which to study and socialize. Please explore the categories below to learn more about what we offer.
