About Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt)

MassArt's founders dared to imagine a better future for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and to believe the path to it lay in creativity. Their goal in establishing the Massachusetts Normal Art School was to educate students in the creative process, which would in turn lead to the development of the mind, body, and spirit.

The institution they created was dedicated to producing drawing teachers required in schools throughout the commonwealth, while at the same time training professional artists, designers, and architects. It proudly opened its doors in 1873 to anyone with talent and the will to succeed-at a time when access for everyone was all too uncommon.

True to its history, MassArt continues to envision all that is possible and strives to reach it. Our history sets the direction for our future.

Campus information

The MassArt campus consists of 8 buildings with over 850,000 square feet. The Facilities Department is responsible for providing the daily operational support needed to provide a safe, clean, suitable working and learning environment.

The Facilities Department's primary mission is to keep the buildings and all ancillary systems and components safe and functional. Our secondary goal is to upgrade the facilities to meet changing academic needs.

MassArt is located in Boston, Massachusetts near the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Harvard Medical School, Wentworth Institute of Technology and Northeastern University.


We house students in our three residence halls, one of which just opened in the fall of 2012.  Our residence halls are Smith Hall (suite-style), which consists entirely of first-year students, the Artists' Residence (apartment-style), which is primarily returning and transfer students, and the Tree House (suite-style), our new residence hall, that houses primarily first and second year students. All of our residence halls have unique facilities designed to address the needs of student artists.
