Welcome to the Academy!
There is no better way to learn about the Academy than by visiting our beautiful, waterfront campus! Currently, campus is open for in-person tours available on a first-come, first-served basis.
As COVID-19 health and safety protocols have adjusted, the following guidelines for visitors are in effect as of June 1, 2021:
We expect and strongly encourage all campus visitors to be fully vaccinated. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving two doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines OR a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Visitors who have not been fully vaccinated, must wear a surgical style facemask at all times and will not be allowed to enter the dormitory complex. The dormitory complex consists of our Mess Deck (cafeteria), the Commandant's Office, SGA recreation room, dorm room, and our Health Services Department.
If a potential visitor has COVID-19 consistent symptoms without a negative test in the 10 days prior to the campus visit, they must refrain from visiting campus.
How do I prepare for a safe and enjoyable visit to Massachusetts Maritime Academy?
We look forward to welcoming you to campus. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Tours will take place rain or shine! We require all visitors who are not fully vaccinated to wear a surgical grade face mask while on campus - neck gaiters, cloth masks, bandanas, scarves, and masks with exhalation vents are not approved face coverings. Please plan to arrive for your tour 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time. If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to anyone with the virus in the last 14 days, we ask that you call to cancel your visit.
Do you accommodate walk-in visitors?
Yes, we will be accommodating walk-in visitors as long as they meet the visitor requirements mentioned above. However, we highly encourage visitors to register in advance by logging into or creating an account and searching for a date/time under Events!
I’ve requested to talk with a coach. Where will we meet?
We ask that you make arrangements to meet with the coach prior to registering for your campus tour. Please be sure to obtain the coach’s contact information so that you can connect with them once the tour has ended.
Can I shadow a current cadet and attend a class?
Currently, we are unable to accommodate the opportunity to shadow or attend an in-person class.
Will there be multiple families per tour? How many guests will I be able to bring with me?
Yes, it is possible that you may be part of a small tour group. as we are no longer restricting the number of guests on each tour.
Will there be dining options on-campus? In the surrounding area?
We are unable to provide on-campus dining options, however, there are several local businesses that will be able to accommodate your family.
Can I schedule an interview with an Admissions Counselor while on campus?
Yes, there is a possibility to meet with a counselor in-person after your tour. Please notify Admissions prior to your visit if you wish to set something up! Additionally, you are more than welcome to meet with your admissions counselor virtually!
