Undergraduate Campus Tours
The best time to visit MassArt is during the academic year when classes are in session. To register for a tour, please follow the link below. Tours for the spring semester begin in late January and are offered most days.
When you arrive for your tour, please check-in at the Admissions Office located in South Hall. To access South Hall, please enter through the Design and Media Center (glass building halfway down the block along Huntington Avenue) and take a left once inside.
Campus visits begin with a half hour information session led by an admissions counselor followed by a student-led campus tour which lasts about two hours. Please plan for a substantial amount of walking.
If you need a disability-related accommodation, please contact Mercedes Evans at email@example.com at least two week prior to your visit.
Please note parking is not available on campus. Please refer to the details on this page for local public parking and directions to campus.
If you will be visiting campus with a family group larger than five, please call the Admissions Office at (617) 879-7222 to register.
If you would like to arrange a visit on behalf of a school group or other organization, please place a request 2-4 weeks prior to your proposed visit. Please note we are only able to accommodate high school age students and transfers. Due to the winter break, we will not be hosting group visits during December or January.
Share your artwork with an admissions counselor and receive tips to strengthen your application. Portfolio reviews are conducted in the admissions office by appointment during business hours. Reviews are informal and have no bearing on the admission decisions. Students are encouraged to bring original work whenever possible. Sketchbooks, work-in-progress, and work saved digitally are also acceptable for review. Transfer students are encouraged to bring a copy of their transcript.
Special note for current high school students: Beginning in January, informal portfolio reviews will not be available for high school seniors currently applying to MassArt. Applicants who have questions regarding their application should contact Admissions at 617-879-7222 or firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected to their specific admissions counselor.
Reviews will be available for high school sophomores and juniors on most weekdays; please call Admissions at 617-879-7222 to schedule an appointment in advance.
Special note for transfer students: Portfolio reviews and/or informational meetings with an admissions counselor are available on most week days. Please call Admissions at 617-879-7222 to schedule an appointment in advance.
AICAD Portfolio Review Portal
Get personalized feedback from the portfolio experts!
We invite you to upload your artwork to receive feedback from AICAD institutions – the leading art & design schools in the US & Canada. This is not a formal application to any of the participating colleges, but rather a special opportunity for informal advisement on developing your portfolio. This site is open to all students from 9th -12th grade as well as college students interested in transferring.
We also encourage you to attend a National Portfolio Day so that you can connect with admissions representatives from many AICAD schools in person. Currently the AICAD Portal does not offer reviews for graduate programs. Students interested in exploring graduate level programs at AICAD schools are encouraged to attend a Graduate Portfolio Day.
If you are considering applying to a graduate program for a master's degree or graduate post-baccalaureate certificate and would like a tour of our facilities, please contact email@example.com or (617) 879-7203.
Whenever possible, we encourage visitors to take public transportation to campus as parking in the area is extremely limited. Longwood Medical Area Station on the E-branch of the MBTA Green Line is located directly outside of MassArt's South Hall.
