Gorgeous, right on the Cliff Walk! Be sure to stop in the Chapel for a moment of quiet. See the La Forge Stained glass windows! Meditate awhile with them. Inspiring!

The Salve Regina campus sits along the beautiful cliff walk in Newport. Over the years we have watched Salve Regina buy many homes in the area, turning them into classrooms or dorms. These are no ordinary homes, but the summer home mansions of Newport. The campus is nice to walk around to enjoy the architecture and gardens.

Beautiful campus along the cliff walk. Definitely worth a detour from the cliff walk to see the campus. Lovely architecture that was originally mansions and taken over by the school. Great pit stop on the walk as well.

Granted a charter by the state of Rhode Island in 1934, the Sisters of Mercy began their planning for a college in the state, which came to fruition with the gift of an estate in 1947. The small initial class with a focus on nursing has blossomed into a school for undergraduate and graduate students totaling 2,600. As Salve Regina... More

We wandered onto the campus when we found that part of the Cliff Walk was still closed (April 2014) for repairs from Hurricane Sandy. We stopped in the chapel and found antique stained glass windows by the same John La Forge whose name crops up elsewhere in Newport. The campus also includes many other historic Newport mansions that are not... More

We wandered around the campus...as well as the outside of the Breakers. What a gorgeous school and simply beautiful location. We walked into the administration building and the students as well as employees were super friendly and helpful. The grounds are absolutely stunning.

I found this by accident, but enjoyed it! Many buildings on campus are old historic homes. Lovely to drive by and walk through. I can't imagine how wonderful t would be to go to school here!

Seaview Terrace is Private property. It is not part of Salve Regina University. It is a home. If you go on the property you will be trespassing. If you are seen the police will be called.

A campus of unique old buildings spread out with many right on the Atlantic Ocean cliffs. In fact, Cliff Walk borders these buildings. Salve Regina offers many educational programs, undergraduate and graduate. Their Pell Center provides excellent lectures on aspects of international relations every year. Not a top requirement if you do not have much time in Newport but a... More
