Chester College of New England was a bachelor's degree-granting college that provided a foundation in the liberal arts and the fine arts, complemented by majors in the professional arts. It opened in 1965 and closed at the end of the 2011-2012 academic year.

Located in Chester, New Hampshire, the college offered degree programs in creative writing; professional writing; photography and media arts (with concentrations in video production, media arts, or photography); graphic design; fine arts; communication arts and interdisciplinary arts. Chester College also offered minor programs in creative writing, illustration, photojournalism, professional writing – publishing and theater.

The college featured a low student-to-faculty ratio (10:1), artist- and writer-in-residence programs, and a program of guest lectures, exhibitions, art and photography exhibits, internships, and relationships with professional associations.

In April 2012 the college disclosed an operating deficit. Despite fundraising efforts, in May 2012, the college's Board of Trustees announced that they had voted to close the college.
