Applying for Housing (Entering Students)

On-campus housing is guaranteed for student starting in the fall (September) semester who fill out the Housing License Agreement before the May 5 deadline. After the deadline has passed, on-campus housing is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Spring and summer incoming students are not guaranteed housing. 

If you are a student entering in the fall semester, you can apply for housing by following the steps below: 

  • Step 1: Access the housing application and portal through the next steps page of the admissions portal. You must first submit your tuition deposit before filling out your housing application. 
  • Step 2: Log into your Housing portal 
    • Students Issued a OnePass: If you have been issued a OnePass from Berklee, please select "BERKLEE SSO Student Login" below and enter your OnePass username and password.
    • Students Not Issued a OnePass: If you have not yet been issued a OnePass, please select "Register" and follow the registration instructions listed. In order to register, you will need your Student ID number.
  • Step 3: Once logged in, select Academic Year Application. Read over the Housing License Agreement (HLA) and sign it before May 5. 
  • Step 4: Wait for further information sent from our office via email, including a housing confirmation. 
    • Information regarding room selection, roommates, and move in will be sent out after the May 5 deadline 

Applying for Housing (Continuing Students)

Housing for continuing students is not guaranteed. All continuing students interested in academic year on-campus housing are encouraged to participate in the on-campus housing lottery, which occurs during the month of March.

  • Step 1: In March, log into your Housing portal and fill out the Academic Year Application (HLA).
  • Step 2: In early April, our office will hold a housing lottery, and inform you whether we are offering you on campus housing, or whether you will be placed on a waitlist. Those not chosen for housing through this lottery process will be put on a waitlist and receive an update on their waitlist position every other week. 

Students confirmed for housing will receive more information over the summer from our office regarding room and roommate selection. You can also view a recording of our Off Campus Housing 101 webinar, which covers the continuing student housing lottery in depth.
