Fall 2023 Move-In
All students who have been confirmed for housing for the fall semester can move in starting Saturday, August 26, 2023, during their assigned time block, which they will receive from our office in late July.
When do I move in?
In late July, all students confirmed for housing will receive an email with their assigned move-in time slot. You can move in to the residence halls any time during or after that assigned slot, but not earlier. Time slots are assigned to ensure a smooth move-in experience and to cut down on wait times.
Can I change my move-in time slot?
To inquire about adjusting your move-in time slot, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is move-in like?
During assigned move-in blocks, students will report directly to their assigned residence hall to pick up a room key. There will be staff available to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. On move-in day during all time blocks, we will also have movers available to help students and their families with getting their items into their room.
Is there parking available on move-in day?
Due to the urban nature of Berklee's campus, we do not have any street parking available on move-in day. Spaces for unloading vehicles will be available at all residence halls. After your vehicle is unloaded, however, it must be moved to a parking garage of your choosing.
Can I send things to campus before move-in day?
Students can mail belongings to campus before move-in day using the address below. All packages will be held at the Mail Center at 1108 Boylston Street. Any packages mailed to the residence halls will be returned to sender. Packages for new incoming students cannot be accepted prior to late August.
168 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston, MA 02115
Can I switch rooms on move-in day if I don't like my assigned room?
On move-in day, our spaces on campus are fully occupied. If you are interested in moving, reach out to the professional staff member overseeing your area during your first few weeks on campus to discuss the room change process.
Can I stop by my residence hall and see my room before move-in day?
During the summer, our halls are fully occupied, and we are not able to give residence hall tours or grant room access before move-in day.
Winter Break 2022
The residence halls close for winter break on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at 12:00 p.m. By this time, all students must vacate the residence halls and are not permitted to return until Sunday, January 15, 2023. Students are allowed to leave items in their room between breaks. Students living on campus in the spring 2023 semester only will receive separate instructions for their arrival. Students currently living on campus will receive more information in December regarding dates and times they may return to campus.
Spring 2023 Move-In
Entering students can move in to the residence halls beginning Sunday, January 15, 2023.
Spring 2023 Move-Out
The residence halls close on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. All residential students will receive an email prior to closing outlining expectations.
- Move-out deadline: All students are encouraged to move out of the residence halls within 24 hours of their last final, with the final date for moving out being May 13, 2023, by 12:00 p.m.
- Moving out: To complete a move-out, students must remove all of their belongings from their residence hall room and then turn in their key at the front desk of their area. Students living in the Fenway residence halls will be provided a key packet, which they will then turn in to their building's key box.
If you are a summer 2023 semester student, you will be emailed separate instructions from our office.
