Medford/Somerville Department Hosted Visitors
Departments on the Medford/Somerville campus may provide limited parking for invited guests in Tufts employee-only parking facilities. Departments must reach out to Tufts Transportation and Parking Services at least one week in advance when seeking guest parking provisions. Transportation and Parking Services will provide an invited guest link and QR code enabling the guest to park on campus in a designated facility. Simply provide the link and/or QR code to invited guests to allow them to purchase their permits. Parking fees for department sponsored guests may be paid by the guest or by the sponsoring department.
Please manage access to the link/QR code to avoid unauthorized use. If you feel the link/code may have been shared with unauthorized individuals, please inform Transportation and Parking Services. Parking sessions utilizing the link/QR code will be billed to the associated department.
Departmental funds cannot be used to fund parking permits for faculty, staff, students, remote or hybrid employees, or vendors and contractors.
