Visiting Tilton

Beyond the Hill

Tilton located in central New Hampshire, at the entrance to the idyllic Lakes Region of the state. New Hampshire boasts the tallest mountains in the Northeast, national scenic byways, festivals and agricultural fairs, tax-free shopping, historic sites and state parks, lakes and beaches, and more than 50 covered bridges.

Our campus is 146 acres, on a hill overlooking the Village of Tilton, New Hampshire—meaning students are just a moment’s walk from local restaurants and boutiques! The campus comprises more than 15 buildings, including five residential dormitories, a multi-purpose athletics center, an indoor ice hockey arena, a turf field, several academic buildings, a school chapel, library, and visual arts center.

Visiting Tilton is easy. Campus is located just 90 minutes from Boston Massachusetts, just north of Concord, New Hampshire. We are less than two miles from Interstate 93, making visits to campus easy for parents. Tilton is 40 miles north of Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, New England’s most convenient airport, with a growing schedule of non-stop, direct service to destinations throughout the country. Most international visitors access our campus through Logan International Airport, in Boston.
