Berklee College of Music is committed to helping students realize their full potential regardless of physical, learning, or psychological disabilities. The college complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The Disability Services staff in the Counseling & Advising Center offer students with physical, learning, health, and psychiatric disabilities a wide array of supports to foster participation in, and enjoyment of, musical and educational opportunities, develop and maintain independence, and facilitate equal educational opportunities. These supports include access to classrooms, services, programs, and events at Berklee.


Students must provide appropriate documentation to the Counseling & Advising Center that supports their disability and the accommodations requested. Accommodations are provided on an individual, case-by-case basis, as the needs of students with disabilities vary. Academic accommodations at Berklee College of Music include priority access to ADA-compliant instrumental practice rooms.


Priority access to practice rooms is coordinated by the Counseling and Advising Center and facilitated by the front desk staff at 150 Massachusetts Avenue or the front desk staff at the 25 Fordham Road rehearsal facility.

Practice rooms at Berklee are “first-come, first-serve,” generally with a maximum reservation period of two hours. Accommodation requests for accessible practice rooms are granted priority access to the next available accessible practice room.
