Beginning fall 2023, NEC will expand its student health services and coverage through Tufts Center for Collegiate Wellness. Through this partnership for no additional cost, NEC students will have full access to Tufts Medical Center’s slate of medical services, including after hours and weekend care.
Located at 800 Washington Street in Boston, the Tufts Center for Collegiate Wellness is the health services provider for many of our neighboring institutions. It is a 13-minute drive, a 15-minute trip by public transit, or a 30-minute walk from NEC. For students who need to visit the CCW, NEC will provide direct transportation from campus, and Residence Life staff will be available to accompany students to the CCW as needed.
NEC’s Coordinator for Health and Wellness located in NEC’s newly established Counseling and Wellness Center will serve as the liaison to Tufts. The Coordinator for Health and Wellness will offer an initial consultation with students and will assist students in their transition to the CCW.
The Counseling Center team remains available to students on campus, including the urgent walk-in hour from 1-2pm, Monday-Friday, alongside the Assist@NEC 24/7 support line.
We look forward to our partnershup with Tufts Medical Center, which has been at the forefront of innovative programs in clincal care, biomedical research, education, and health delivery for more than 200 years.
