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 fall semester begin Monday, September 14th. Please note our remaining summer tours are at capacity. If you will be visiting MassArt from outside of New England before fall tours begin, please call the Admissions Office at 617 879 7222.

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 mercedes.evans@massart.edu at least two week prior to your visit.

Visit Days

MassArt Visit Day is your chance to take a closer look at what life could be like at MassArt. Tour our workshops and studios, learn about the foundation year, and get tips on how to strengthen your application and prepare your portfolio.

Directions

Tours begin at the Admissions Office in South Hall. Please note all of the academic buildings at MassArt share the same address: 621 Huntington Ave. South Hall is the brick building halfway down the block along Huntington Avenue (refer to map).

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.

Group Tours

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. Please note during the summer our ability to host groups is very limited, and we are only able to accommodate high school age students.

On-campus Portfolio Reviews

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.

To schedule a portfolio review, please call (617) 879-7222.

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.

Graduate students

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 gradadmissions@massart.edu or (617) 879-7203.
