Visit & Events


A visit to MIAD’s campus is an opportunity to see what our students see. Neat, it is not. There is dust. There is grit. Paint has been spilled. People are at work here, and this is the place where your passion can find purpose.

Experiment. Explore. Discover. You are welcome here.

At this time, virtual tours and portfolio reviews are available with an admissions counselor. Please contact us at to set up an appointment. Upcoming campus events are listed below.
