About Newbury College

129 Fisher Ave, BrooklineBoston, MA

In 1982, the Newbury College acquired the former Cardinal Cushing College and began relocating the school to the current 7.8-acre campus in Brookline, Massachusetts. As the college began physically expanding and acquiring buildings in the surrounding area, the satellite campuses began to consolidate into one centralized college campus.

The school officially changed its name to Newbury College in 1985, and in 1994, it became a baccalaureate college. Newbury now offers both associate's and bachelor's degrees on its Brookline campus.

In the fall of 2015, Newbury transformed the college’s library into a 16,000-square-foot "Student Success Center", the first major renovation project on campus in more than 20 years. The center, which completely altered how academic and student services were delivered to students[clarification needed], now is home to full-time faculty in English and Math, English and Math Mastery tutors, Tutoring Center and Academic Counselors, Counseling, Career and Internship Services. Additionally, the College transformed part of its Student Center into the Chawla Fitness Center and created the Connelly Family Sport Court, just outside the Student Center, which includes space for basketball and volleyball as well a batting cage and pitcher's mound.

In December 2018, the college announced it would shut down following the completion of the spring 2019 semester after several years of declining enrollment.
