Visiting the Library During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, access to the Medical Education Building is limited to current Tufts University Health Sciences students, faculty, and staff.

What To Do Before Visiting the Library

In keeping with the University guidelines, if you plan to visit the Library you must observe rules regarding physical distancing, wearing masks, and completing a screening survey prior to arrival. Once you enter the building, you will need to show the security officer a completed Tufts Symptoms survey on your phone (or printed copy)  The survey can be accessed via, the Tufts mobile app, or the Healthy @ Tufts portal. You will not be admitted into the building until you have completed this survey and get the All Clear sign. You need to complete the screening survey any day you come to the building.

Building Hours and Access

Building Hours: Open until midnight, swipe access 7am-11pm

Building access for Tufts Medical Center staff is currently limited to those who have a scheduled meeting or exam. Please have your department or event organizer contact us at to arrange access.

Reminder About Mask Policy

We have received multiple reports that students are removing their masks while seated and studying in the library. We ask that you remain vigilant in keeping your mask on while in the building for your safety and the safety of others in nearby proximity. We really appreciate your adherence to the policy during these difficult times.
