All Jumbo Volleyball Clinics are day clinics, therefore we do not offer overnight accommodations and are not responsible for players outside of clinic hours. However, we do have a wide range of suggestions and recommendations depending on the experience you are looking for! Remember that all accommodations below are run independently from Jumbo Volleyball Clinics, but are used frequently by Tufts University visitors every year! Keep in mind that it is a Massachusetts state law that hotels cannot provide rooms for students under the age of 21 without an adult present.
Tufts University has negotiated a special rate with The Hyatt Place in Medford along with 8 other hotels in the area. This hotel is located on 116 Riverside Avenue, Medford, MA 02155 (781-395-8500) and is the closest (1 mile) to Cousens Gym and the Steve Tisch Athletic Center. Included in the rate is a complimentary continental hot breakfast and buffet along with a shuttle service that will take you to and from the Tufts campus when you plan ahead with the front desk. When booking with this hotel, mention that you are visiting Tufts University and request the "Tufts Business Rate" of $190. Please note that there are only a certain number of rooms available at this rate and once they are booked, remaining rooms will only be available at the current summer rate. Boston is very popular this time of year so make your reservations soon! If you would like to speak to our direct contact at the Hyatt Place, please contact:

If you are interested in staying on-campus with your family, the Tufts University Conference Bureau provides college housing accommodations during the summer months to prospective students who will stay in the main summer dorm on campus. They will have a 24-hour front desk staffed for guests to check-in/out and they will serve as a resource for all guests during their stay. Bathrooms are shared throughout the residence hall, but are private and lockable. The rooms are located on campus within a short walk of the dining hall and the Gym.
These rooms are intended as a low cost option for those who are traveling on a limited budget. There are several room types available from singles and doubles to 4-6 person suites. Individual guests can reserve and pay for rooms online directly with the Tufts Conference Bureau. The Conference Bureau can also provide information on campus dining options should you choose to add this option when making your reservations online. Remember that Lunch is included with the clinic price so if you are going to purchase meals, only purchase Breakfast and Dinner. A limited amount of rooms will be available, so please plan on making your arrangements early. Get a taste of true dorm living!
* Please note that if you are under the age of 18, you must have an adult who stays with you in the dorms on campus.
