- Housing and Auxiliary Student Services
We look forward to welcoming you to the neighborhood. Berklee has a number of residence halls close to campus buildings, as well as facilities for dining, practicing your music, and socializing, as well as laundry, wi-fi, and other amenities. Berklee’s Housing and Residence Life staff works to foster the supportive community that defines the Berklee environment.
- Counseling and Advising Center
As a Berklee student, you are never alone. Any student at Berklee—including first-year students, international students, and students with disabilities—can take advantage of the Counseling and Advising Center’s support services, which include academic advising and personal counseling.
- International Advising
Adjusting to life in the U.S. can present challenges. The Counseling and Advising Center’s (CAC) International Advising program helps international students overcome those challenges. Whether you are concerned about maintaining your F-1 status, your I-20 and visa stamp, or whether you just need help adapting to life in a new country, the CAC is here to help.
- Career Development Center
Connect with the Career Development Center (CDC) for expert guidance, leading-edge resources, engaging connections, and professional development programs/events aimed at helping you achieve your music career goals through the Berklee Career Manager platform. The CDC's focus is on music career management and helping students/alumni access resources and activities that are applicable to their career paths.
- Student Activities
Music education is what brings students to Berklee, but most Berklee students are interested in engaging in music and other activities outside of the classroom, from student clubs and student-run enterprises to student government and more.
- Peer Advising
As an entering student, we know you have a lot to figure out. The Peer Advising program helps you get academically and socially orientated by pairing you with both a peer advisor and a faculty advisor. Get to know Berklee and the City of Boston and learn more about our community and resources from some of the many friendly faces at Berklee.
- Parent Office
Sending your child to college is a big step. At Berklee, parents are considered an integral part of the community, and those who wish to get involved are invited to join the Berklee Parents’ Association, which works closely with Berklee’s Parent Office.
- Policy Handbook for Students
From the academic calendar and campus map to policies and curriculum information, the Policy Handbook for Students offers a wealth of information that students should use in order to best navigate their educational experience at Berklee.
