Tufts has gone to incredible lengths to make students feel safe on campus. With safety services like Tufts Emergency Medical Services (TEMS), police escorts, and a strong police presence, students feel safe walking around the well-monitored, well-lit campus, even at night. Don’t let the “you can’t spell stupid without TUPD” jokes fool you—TUPD officers are always around campus and are willing to help out in any way they can. Every year, there are a few assaults, robberies, and hate crimes, but rarely are they committed by Tufts students or members of the Tufts community.
There are blue-light safety phones all over campus, and Tufts also has a fire department and an emergency medical service on hand. Every dorm has its own unique key, and the ResLife office is currently phasing in infrared electronic keys for added security. Above all else, “townies” present the biggest threat around the Tufts area, and even this isn’t worth getting your panties in a bunch. Many townies are friendly and show respect toward Tufts students, but students may encounter a curmudgeon every once in a while.
