University Password Policy

University Password Policy


Revised University Password Policy

 August 10, 2017

Dear Trustees:

Since 2007, Tufts University has required most university systems users to reset their Tufts password every 180 days. In October 2016, the university set up a testing program which eliminates the need to reset passwords every 180 days.  This policy is currently in effect and will be re-evaluated in October 2017.

Trustees who are also Advisors may use the same password to access both the Trustee Boardroom and the Boards of Advisors private site.

Should You Forget Your Password

  • Contact the Trustees Office. We will send you an email with a link to TuftsTools with instructions on how to reset your password.
Phone: 617-627-3320
  • Contact Tufts University IT Help Desk which is available 24 hours to assist you with resetting your password or unlocking your account. The Help Desk is committed to expediting service to Trustees.
Phone: 617-627-3376


Please let me know if you have any questions.
