TMC Membership is open to all of the Tufts community–students, staff, faculty, and alumni, and immediate family members of Tufts-affiliates are all welcome to join. The initial membership fee is $25, and returning members are asked to pay yearly $20 dues. Financial Aid is provided for membership if needed. All membership fees go to direct costs, which include non-infrastructural Loj maintenance, TMC van payments, new gear, and financing all the fun opportunities made available to club members. TMC receives no budget money from the university; we are entirely self-funded.

With your TMC membership, you get…

  • Discounted rates at the Loj
  • Free TMC gear rental
  • A subscription to our e-list and weekly newsletter, where you can find all the information regarding upcoming trips and events
  • The opportunity to receive discounts on gear, professional certifications, and memberships to outdoor organizations
  • An awesome community of people who love being outside as much as you do!


Signing up for your membership:

New Members: Wooo! You want to be a TMC member! There are two things you have to do:

1.) Register

(You will be directed to the payment page after registration. )

Returning Members:  If you registered an account with the website, login, and then all you have to do is pay. The system should recognize you as a returning member, and charge you the appropriate ($20) fee. Email our webmaster with any issues.
