As the greater Boston area remains lockdown during the search for a second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, the university's Boston and Medford/Somerville campuses will stay closed on Saturday, April 20 until 5 p.m.
The university wrote in an email to the Tufts community that it is "monitoring the evolving situation in the Boston area carefully" and will maintain increased police presence on the two campuses.
Students are encourage to stay inside, and all activities are cancelled. The Boston campus' Hirsh Health Sciences Library will be open during normal hours Saturday.
On the Medford/Somerville campus, some facilities will reopen tomorrow.
Carmichael and Dewick will both open tomorrow at 8:00am for breakfast. Tisch Library, Health Services and all athletic facilities will be open for normal Saturday hours.
The Granoff Family Hillel Center will hold normal Saturday services, and Counseling and Mental Health Service will hold a workshop for concerned students Saturday 4:00-5:00pm in Sawyer House at 120 Curtis Street.
Athletic events with athlete transportation arranged by Tufts will continue.
Two shuttle routes operating today will continue service until 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning and will resume at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday. Route maps and schedules for the shuttle are available here.
