Applying for Housing

Application Information for Entering Students

Applying for a space in the residence halls is a separate process from applying for admission to the college. The housing application is available to students through Admissions only after you have been accepted to the college and confirmed your intention to attend by submitting your admissions tuition deposit. 

Berklee College of Music is an urban campus, and around 1,200 of Berklee's 4,500 students live on campus. Many Berklee students, including some entering students, live in private apartments in neighborhoods near the college. Due to on-campus space limitations, not all entering students who apply will be approved for on-campus housing; the chance of being approved is higher for those who submit their tuition deposits and housing applications on time.

Spring 2018 Entering Students

The housing application will become available by September 19. You will find information once it is available in your admissions portal and you have made your tuition deposit. You can also see more about the process here.

Summer 2018 and Fall 2018 Entering Students

The housing application will become available no later than February 9. Once you have made your tuition deposit, the housing application will become available through the admissions portal. Additional information about the application process can be found here.

Room Selection Information for Continuing Students

Room selection is the annual three-step process that allows current and continuing students to select their room and choose their roommates for the following academic year (fall and spring semesters). For the 2018–2019 room selection, this will be done through an online process that will allow students to participate via the Berklee Hub. 

The 2018–2019 Continuing Student Housing Application will be available in early March. We will send out all of the information to all current residents who may wish to live on campus again next year. If you currently live off campus and would like to live on campus next year, please let us know as soon as possible. Review the information provided in its entirety, and be sure to contact us with any questions you may have.
