This program helps full-time faculty in Arts & Sciences and Engineering find a place to live until they become familiar with the area and can make more informed decisions about where to live. Incoming full-time faculty for AY 2013-14 may rent a unit for up to three years. The rents are market-rate.
Program housing consists of rental property owned by Walnut Hill Properties. Some units are one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in the recently renovated Hillside School Apartments, occupied primarily by Tufts faculty and administrators. Others are two- or three-bedroom apartments in wood-frame houses. These houses typically contain two or three apartments, which Walnut Hill rents primarily to Tufts faculty, staff, and graduate students. All are within easy walking distance of campus.
Interested faculty should contact Dr. Margery Davies, Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs for the School of Arts & Sciences and the School of Engineering (email@example.com; 617-627-3385), for more information.
