Schedule your campus visit today

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.

If you require ADA accommodations, please contact before your visit.

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.

Please note that the admissions offices will be closed and no visits will be available on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, February 10, 2016 (1:00 p.m. only)

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.

We are coming to Texas! Starting February 15, 2016, we will have admissions and athletics representatives visiting several schools and college fairs throughout the Lone Star State, culminating with us hosting a reception in the Dallas/Fort Worth area on Saturday, February 20, 2016. Learn more and register for the reception by clicking 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.

If your major within the School of Business, School of Design and School of Social Sciences and Humanities, please click here.
