For many students, location and atmosphere are important factors in finding the right school. Therefore, the Office of Admission encourages prospective students and their parents to visit the NEC campus for a student-led tour.  The campus tour provides a great look at our facilities, including recital halls, libraries, classrooms, practice rooms, and our historic concert hall, Jordan Hall. While the tour guides will be able to answer many of your questions, prospective students and their parents can meet with an Admissions Counselor immediately after the tour to discuss any additional questions.

NEC tours take place on weekdays at 11am and are also offered at 2pm on Mondays and Fridays. During the summer break (May to September), tours are only offered at 11am on weekdays. Tours last approximately one hour and leave from the Office of Admission (Room 101) of the St. Botolph building located at 241 St. Botolph Street (campus map below). Please note that during the summer months, the Residence Hall is closed and we are unable to show dorm rooms or the cafeteria. Additionally, students and faculty are generally not on campus and classes are not in session during the summer. If you would like to contact or meet with a faculty member, please reach out to them directly through their faculty page on the NEC website. 

If you are interested in a campus tour and know the date on which you would like to visit, please email the Office of Admission at and provide the following details: 

  1. Name
  2. Interested Program and Degree
  3. Intended Date and Time of tour
  4. Number of people (including yourself)
  5. Phone Number

You may also request to speak with an Admissions Counselor before or after the tour. Counselor availability can vary.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the NEC Concert Calendar for a listing of events to attend during their time here at NEC.
