Salve Regina University
Attend open house programs by the ocean at beautiful Salve Regina University, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in Newport. Interviews are not required, but it is suggested that prospective students first visit the campus and chat with an academic adviser. Or perhaps you simply want to enjoy the beauty of the buildings, including examples designed by Gilded Age architects Richard Morris Hunt and Seth Bradford. The buildings and 60 landscaped historic acres were once part of Newport estates.
This small campus is the site of numerous historic mansions and homes in Newport. Although the interiors are not open for viewing, it is well worth the time to drive through the campus and enjoy the exteriors. We toured the campus on a Saturday morning in early October and found that it was very easy to park near each of the homes - - and that the properties were nearly deserted at that time.
Do visit the university’s website for detailed information about the properties, as well as a detailed map of the campus locating each of the historic properties. From the main page of their website, click on “About” then click on “Virtual Tour”.
Here is a brief description of the properties on Salve Regina’s campus worth a stop to see:
