This policy applies to students, faculty, staff, patients, visitors, third parties and other community members.

Policy Statement

Tufts University is committed to providing an academic and work environment that is respectful of the religious beliefs of its students, employees, patients, visitors and community members. As part of this commitment, Tufts will make good faith efforts to provide reasonable religious accommodations to those in our community whose sincerely held religious beliefs conflict with a university policy, procedure, or other academic or employment requirement unless such an accommodation would create an undue hardship or would fundamentally alter our work, program and/or mission.


There are a number of terms specific to the religious accommodations process. Use the information below to better understand these terms.

Prayer and Meditation Rooms

Prayer and meditation rooms offer a sacred space for individuals to pray or otherwise be in a more private, contemplative setting.  They are located at various locations throughout Tufts, and do not require advance reservations. Some of them do require a Tufts ID card to access, but not all.

You can see a listing of all prayer and meditation spaces on the University Chaplaincy Sacred Spaces On Campus page.
