This mansion, Newport's second largest after the Breakers, is easily overlooked but well worth a visit. It is now the Salve Regina University administration building. The estate was deeded to the Sisters of Mercy Catholic Order (My apologies if I may have the official title incorrect) in the late forties. They do not offer tours, but the public is allowed...

A beautiful old mansion from the gilded age of Newport that is now a respected and thriving university. Although I don't believe they offer official tours, they will allow you to view the rooms on the first floor, as well as the grounds of the mansion and the campus. Well worth a side trip while visiting Newport.

This is a beautiful campus, and the main building is absolutely gorgeous inside. Don't forget to look up and see the painted ceiling!!!!! My daughter attended Salve Regina, and she found it to be a wonderful small university. She loved living in Newport as a college student too! I highly recommend this school to any student looking for a small... More

Simply stunning architecture. The campus is like taking a step back in time to the mid-1800's. It has everything but it is just jaw-dropping to walk through.

Salve Regina University campus is a small but stunning array of former mansions in Newport. If you are taking the cliff walk you have views of some of their buildings, but I would recommend taking a stroll through the entire campus.

Beautiful campus in Newport where the mansions are. There's a walk right on the sea wall that is amazing. It's like another world there. The houses and landscape is incredible.

Salve's campus is located right along the Cliff Walk. Many of the building were bought and restored. The views from campus are amazing. There is so much character! It is the ideal place to study in the New England area and definitely worth wandering around if you are in Newport.
