Campus Tours

During the winter break, we are offering a limited number of campus tours. Please note that access to academic areas and/or residence halls may be restricted as classes will not be in session. If possible, we encourage you to visit after classes resume on January 21st. To register, please click the red button below.

Campus visits begin with an information session led by an admissions counselor followed by a student-led campus tour including the residence halls. Visits are generally 2-2.5 hours long and include 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.

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.

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.

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.
