Spaces and Places
When Tufts opened its doors in 1852, historic Ballou Hall stood as the lone light on Walnut Hill. Today, many classroom buildings, laboratories, recreational facilities, libraries, performance spaces, and residence halls serve as places of learning, inspiration, and discovery across the university’s Medford/Somerville, Boston, and Grafton campuses.
The School of Dental Medicine now touches the sky with its five-floor Vertical Expansion Initiative that features brand‑new operatories and classrooms, which have transformed the learning experience for TUSDM students. New spaces such as the Agnes Varis Campus Center in Grafton and the Granoff Music Center and Sophia Gordon Hall in Medford/Somerville help to set the stage for an even more vibrant campus experience. And renovations to the Sackler Center on the Boston campus ensure students are learning the healing arts in state-of-the-art spaces.
Tufts is committed to building and maintaining spaces like these for our students and faculty—and the university relies on support from alumni, parents, and friends to aid in establishing these spaces that will help shape the future of our community.
