Schedule your campus visit today

Please note the College will be closed and no tours will be available on Monday, April 20, 2015.

You must see our beautiful campus for yourself. Here, we offer a safe, fun, supportive and friendly community for you to transform your college experience into a rock-solid foundation for success – in your career and in your life. Mount Ida provides a small, private New England college experience and our convenient location in Newton, Massachusetts, just eight miles from Boston, makes it easy to get here. People visit campus and love it. You will too.

We’ve put helpful driving directions and public transportation directions in one place to help you find our campus.


Campus visit options

We know that you and your family have very busy schedules. That’s why we have designed a visit program with many different options.

Weekday campus tours. You can also take one of our regularly scheduled campus tours during the week. During the school year, we offer tours at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Weekend information sessions. Throughout the year, we also host information sessions one Saturday per month, which include an admissions presentation, a campus tour and an opportunity to meet some of our select professors. If you are a student athlete, a number of these Saturday sessions are set aside for you to get to know more about our athletics programs, in addition to our career-focused degrees. You may see a list of our weekend information sessions and reserve your spot here.

Small group meeting and tour with an admissions counselor. If you find our regular tours and events don’t work for you, we encourage you to schedule a small group tour with us. One of our admissions experts would be happy to provide a personalized introduction to what Mount Ida can offer you, then you can take a tour of the campus that focuses on your areas of interest. Please email Admissions to schedule an appointment here.

Admitted Student Day. Each Spring we invite our incoming Fall students for a fun experience where they will receive a program-specific overview of your academic major, along with opportunities to learn more about financial aid, understand housing options, and explore all of the various resources and programs that are going to be available. Light refreshments will be available throughout the day as well. Please note that we will be hosting two separate days based on your major. Learn more and register by clicking here.
