Cortiva Institute’s Newington campus is located at 75 Kitts Lane in Newington, Connecticut. This campus location is between Puerta Vallarta and Boston Market, and on the same side of the street on Kitts Lane. We are right off the Berlin Turnpike with easy access to major highways, including Interstate 91 and Route 5/15. Touch of Light Therapeutic Massage is just a couple of buildings away, and on the other side of Kitts Lane, you’ll see Enterprise Rent-A-Car, A-Plus Audio & Tinting, and Manicure Island.

If you’re coming from the New Britain area, you can reach us via East Main Street, CT-174, and Robbins Avenue to Kitts Lane. Students coming from the Wethersfield area can hop on the US-5 South/Berlin Turnpike and then make a right on East Robbins Avenue, followed by a left on Kitts Lane.

Conveniently, we are located on the local bus line, making it easy for students to reach our campus without the use of a car. The Berlin Turnpike and Boston Market bus station nearby operates buses #45 and #47.

At Cortiva Newington, we offer easily accessible parking to students. The parking lot at 75 Kitts Lane provides parking for our students, as does part of the VFW adjacent parking lot.

In Newington, Cortiva Institute has a wonderful facility with a variety of educational tools and features to make learning productive and enjoyable. We are located in a 30,000-square-foot facility with a variety of large classrooms as well as a student clinic and meditation room. We have 20-25 instructors on staff in Newington, making this one of the comprehensive facilities that Cortiva offers.

Our Newington campus staff has connections with numerous local massage practices, medical facilities, and spas, such as Cromwell Massage & Wellness, Massage Envy, and Elements Massage. Additionally, Newington students have the fortunate opportunity to engage in clinical practice onsite, right here at the Newington Cortiva Institute Student Clinic. We are happy to be a part of the Newington community and regularly engage in partnerships with Massage Envy and Hand and Stone for local community events.

Cortiva’s Newington location is just minutes from Hartford, Connecticut, as well as many surrounding towns, giving newly graduating students many options for employment and community involvement. The city of Hartford is only about 10 minutes from our Newington campus, while Providence is about 1.5 hours away and New York City about 2.5 hours from here. Therefore, Newington is a great place to be if you’re looking to be centrally located to the very best that New England and the Tri-State Area have to offer.

Central Connecticut State University, the Wethersfield Country Club, Mill Woods Park, and Twenty Rod Road Park are all in close proximity to our Newington campus. Meanwhile, the campus itself is surrounded by many convenient retail stores and eateries, including Joey Garlics Newington for pizza, Mykonos Mediterranean restaurant, Vida Doce Café & Pastry Shop, Subway, and Dunkin Donuts. Bob’s Stores Footwear & Apparel, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, the Sloppy Waffle, and the Stop & Shop supermarket are right nearby as well.

A wonderful place in the charming suburb of Newington to spend time is Mills Pond Falls, located within the Mills Pond Park. This is an ideal place to go for a walk, run, or hike to get some exercise and enjoy the fresh air and natural scenery of Connecticut when you’re not in class or studying. With a population of just over 30,000, Newington is a pleasant place to get around, with all of the local amenities you could want and easy access to the educational, networking, and social opportunities you need to establish yourself in the field of massage therapy.
