Vending Machines

Tufts contracts with a 3rd party supplier to provide beverage and snack vending machines in high traffic, convenient locations on all three Tufts campuses. On September 3, 2010, Tufts’ supplier – Canteen Corporation – was sold to Next Generation Vending, a Canteen Corporation franchisee. Much of the leadership at Next Generation has moved to the new company. We anticipate the same if not better product selection and service from Next Generation.

In the beverage machines you will find a variety of Coke products, Minute Maid juices, PowerAde, Sobe drinks and Dasani bottled water.

A variety of snack foods, candy and gum are provided in most residence halls, some academic buildings and most administrative buildings. Look for healthy snacks labeled with the Balanced Choices logo. And if ice cream is your snack of choice, we provide Good Humor ice cream in Hill Hall, Houston Hall and at the Cousens Gym cage area.

Vending machines accept coins, bills and in the residence halls and academic buildings they accept JumboCash.

If you need a refund or experience a problem with any machine, call 877-644-8363 or email customercare@nextgenerationone.com. You can also contact the Tufts Dining & Business Services office at 89 Curtis Street (617-627-3566) or TuftsDining@tufts.edu with vending problems.
