The Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) has assigned police and security personnel to the SMFA at Tufts to provide police and public safety services. Police Officers, supervised by a Sergeant, provide response to calls for service and patrol SMFA at Tufts facilities. Campus Security Officers are stationed at the main entrances to 230 Fenway and 160 St. Alphonsus Street for access control and customer service.


TUPD Police Officers have full law enforcement authority with primary jurisdiction for incidents occurring in and upon lands owned, leased, used, or occupied by Tufts University. TUPD Officers are professionally trained and highly dedicated to serving and protecting the Tufts community.


If a Tufts University campus closes due to snow or other weather, it will be announced via email, web, social media, and on a variety of local news stations. Please visit Weather Closing Information for details.

Text alerts are not automatically sent to announce a weather closing. You can subscribe to opt-in text alerts if you would like to be notified when a campus closes. See Opt-In Alerts for more information.

The City of Boston’s Stolen Bike Alert program makes reporting stolen bikes easier and increases the chances of finding your stolen bike by giving you a larger network of search parties.

When you report a stolen bike, an alert is sent to the police, local bike shops, hospital and school security, and everyone who follows on Twitter or Facebook. All of these people will be on the look-out for your bike and the city will instantaneously notify the police as updates are received on your stolen bike. For more information:
