Visit Campus

Schedule your visit today!

Many Mount Ida College students think of campus as not just the place where they attend classes, but also home. Our beautiful 72-acre traditional New England college campus is one of the best in the northeast. Nestled in the picturesque and safe suburb of Newton, Massachusetts, our campus is just minutes away from Boston, a world-class city.

Have general questions? Feel free to e-mail the Office of Admissions at admissions@mountida.edu or call (617) 928-4553.

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 admissions@mountida.edu before your visit.

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 the Office of Admissions to schedule an appointment here.
