“An intesting extra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

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 on the mansion tour or tourist lists. We didn't go into any other buildings, but if you have time it could be worth it to explore them.

“Gorgeous College!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

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.

“Great place to wander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

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 ( Carey Mansion )”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

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.
