We are a tight-knit community of artists, designers and writers, obsessed with creativity, driven to make a difference, and engaged with the world around them. At the Institute of Art and Design at New England College we test limits and champion invention. We make, think, advocate, create, adapt, engage, invent, collaborate, act, test, dream, empower, influence, inspire... all so you can command your own future and thrive as a creative professional. See for yourself at one of our Visit Days.

In between the historic buildings that make up our campus are parks, coffee shops, and historical sites. Stroll our historic mill buildings, take in a ball game, or check out a concert at the Palace Theatre, all with a price tag you can afford. On your tour you'll meet our world class faculty, talk with our super creative community of students and get a feel for life in a New Hampshire college town. And yes, with 23,000 college students living and studying in Manchester, we are a college town.
