Visit

A campus visit is your best opportunity to discover what Salve Regina is all about.

We offer prospective students and their families a variety of opportunities to visit Salve Regina, including campus tours and information sessions, open houses and special events. In addition, our admissions counselors routinely hit the road and would love to meet you while they’re in your area.

We encourage you to play an active role in your campus visit – speak with students and professors, sample the food, attend an athletics event and meet with an admissions counselor. While you’re here, plan to also spend some time exploring Newport. With its rich history, bustling waterfront and endless activities, it’s easy to see why our students feel fortunate to live and study in this unique location.

If you’ve already been accepted, congratulations! Be sure to explore events designed exclusively for you at salve.edu/accepted.

Preregistration is encouraged but not required. If you need special accommodations for a campus tour, please contact us prior to your visit.
