Planned Utility Shutdowns 

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during the planned electrical shutdowns on the Medford/Somerville Campus.

On Saturday, the second of three electrical shutdowns was completed. Once all three shutdowns are finalized, the plant will commence commercial operations, producing steam, hot water, chilled water and electricity to meet campus needs. Please visit Tufts Construction for more details.

As a reminder, the third and final shutdown will happen on Thursday, March 22 from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. In the case of inclement weather, it may be necessary to postpone the shutdown to Friday, March 23, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m. As of today, rescheduling should not be necessary.
