New Tufts Parking Permit Process on Medford/Somerville Campus effective October 1

Tufts University is changing how you purchase parking permits on the Medford / Somerville Campus. Using Sentry Mobile parking service, your license plate will become your parking permit. There will no longer be decals, hang tags or paper permits available.

**Please note: your current hang tag parking permit will remain valid until September 30, 2020**

The new license plate recognition system, Sentry Mobile, will allow faculty, staff, students and visitors the option to pay via the Sentry Mobile app, Tufts on-line parking portal or at select pay stations on campus.  Users will self-identify by entering their license plate and payment option. Much like meter applications used in and around the city, the “clock starts” when you initiate the purchase.

In response to customer feedback, the Sentry Mobile system will offer students, staff and faculty more flexibility.  In lieu of traditional semester and annual passes, daily or monthly parking options will be available.

Tufts Community preferred rates are:

Monthly Per Hour Daily max
Commuting Students $34.00 $2.00 $10.00
Faculty/Staff $37.00 $2.50 $10.00
Residing Students $67.00 $2.00 $10.00
Visitors $160.00 $3.00 $20.00
