undergraduate campus tours & Events


Tours are offered most days of the workweek at 10 a.m. and/or 1 p.m. The last day of tours for the spring semester is Tuesday, May 15th. Whenever possible, we encourage guests to visit during the school year when classes are in session. We will offer a limited schedule of tours this summer beginning in June; please check back in May for the summer schedule.

Visits are typically structured in three parts:

  • 1-hour highlight focusing on student life and communal spaces across campus
  • 20-minute information session with an admissions counselor
  • 45-minute tour of majors/departments by request

Please note tours depart promptly at either 10:15 a.m. or 1:15 p.m. If possible, please arrive early. To register for a tour, please follow the link below:

Group Tours

During the academic year, MassArt invites groups from schools and other organizations to campus for guided tours. Tours are typically 45-90 minutes in length, and visitors will see highlight areas across campus. We are able to accommodate a maximum of 40 students per tour, and we require at least one chaperone for every 10 students. Group tours are best suited for students in high school or prospective transfers. Groups with students in grades 4 through 12 may also be interested in MassArt's gallery education program, Looking to Learn.

Please note that at this time we are unable to schedule additional group visits for spring 2018; please check back in late August to check the availability for the fall semester.

Portfolio Reviews

Portfolio reviews for prospective undergraduate students are conducted in the admissions office by appointment during business hours. Reviews are informal and have no bearing on the admissions decision. Students are encouraged to bring original work whenever possible. Sketchbooks, work-in-progress, and work saved digitally are also acceptable for review.

Please note that portfolio reviews for students applying for Fall 2018 are limited as the deadline approaches. Generally, we do not schedule portfolio reviews for high school seniors beyond December 1. Instead, we encourage you to apply and contact us with any questions. Portfolio reviews for younger propsective students and pontential transfers are scheduled year-round. Transfer students should bring a copy of their college transcript(s) to the review.

To schedule a portfolio review, please call 617.879.7222.
