Residence Halls

Welcome to Housing and Residential Life at Berklee!

Berklee houses approximately 1,500 students in our residence halls at Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee each academic year. We seek to provide a safe, educational, and enjoyable living environment where students can learn and grow as they are exposed to a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, and musical styles. For many students, residence hall living is an opportunity to develop responsibility, independence, and the art of compromise that is necessary for living with other people. The residence halls are a great home base for starting a career at Berklee, making friends, and establishing connections. Living in the residence halls provides the best access to all of the institution’s facilities and programs.

The residence halls provide a variety of urban and historic settings in which to live, learn, practice, bond, perform, and have fun. All of the residence halls are located within a 10-minute walk to the main campus buildings. On-campus students are supported by a helpful, well-trained residence life staff of resident assistants and resident directors. The residential and campus life team supports a wide range of programming in the residence halls and around campus. There are many opportunities for student engagement, leadership, and development.
