    Visiting Campus

    Every fall and spring, we host a campus open house, which we encourage anyone who wants to learn more about Williams-Mystic to attend. At our open houses, you’ll have the chance to connect with current students and recent alumni; explore our museum campus; learn from Williams-Mystic faculty and other local experts; and talk one-on-one with our admissions department.

    If you’d prefer to visit individually, email us at [email protected]! We’d be happy to have you stop by our main office, Labaree House, at 72 Greenmanville Avenue, and lead you on a campus tour.

    Williams-Mystic is accessible by car, train, or bus.  Please contact us if you do not have transportation but would like to visit–we can often help you arrange transportation.

    Please email [email protected] for more details or to schedule a visit.
