Visit SMFA

See what art school is all about.

Most visits include a personal interview and portfolio review, as well as a tour of the campus. Although interviews are not an admissions requirement, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the opportunity to meet personally with an admissions counselor. It's a great chance to present your work and receive valuable guidance on portfolio preparation. Give us a call at 617-369-3626 to schedule a informal interview and review Monday–Friday at 9 am, 11 am, 1 pm, or 3 pm.

Tours

Give us a call at 617-369-3626 or send us an email at admissions@smfa.edu to schedule a tour Monday–Friday at 10 am or 2 pm. You and your guests will also receive passes for free admission to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Open Houses

SMFA hosts Open Houses throughout the year for both our undergraduate and graduate programs. Open Houses are a great way to learn about the School, the studio and academic coursework, the range of internships available and most importantly, to get to know our students, faculty, and staff.

For dates and details regarding the next SMFA Open House, please contact our Admissions Office today: 617-369-3626 or admissions@smfa.edu

Home to more than 60 colleges and universities with more than 250,000 students, Boston is a great place to attend school—especially art school.

In addition to sharing a campus with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, our neighborhood is also home to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Just a short distance away is the Institute of Contemporary Art. Explore further and you will find more than 50 museums and dozens of galleries to inspire you.

As one of the oldest cities in America, Boston has an internationally diverse population with abundant culture-expanding opportunities. The urban setting of our campus gives you access to great music venues, classic and experimental theaters, independent film houses and bookstores, great restaurants and farmers markets, bike and walking trails, and of course sports venues, with Fenway Park less than a mile from our front door.
