Welcome to Boston

Not only is your student new to Berklee, they are also new to the city of Boston. Whether you are local to the New England area or coming from across the globe, we know it can be challenging to move to a new place.

  • Discover things to do as a family in our seasonal family fun guide.
  • Learn more about Boston and its great live music scene.
  • Plan your trips around the city using the MBTA.
