The Health Science Campus

Tufts Medical Center

The Sackler School 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.

Each of these facilities is houses Sackler School-associated laboratories. Some also contain cafes, comfortable study space, and lounge areas and televisions, all of which are open to Tufts students.
