Applying for Housing

Application Information for Entering Students

Applying for residence hall housing 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 4,000 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.

Fall 2017 and Summer 2017 Entering Students

The housing application will become available around March 1, 2017. You will recieve information once it is available and you have made your tuition deposit. 

Room Selection Information for Continuing Students

Room Selection, a three-step process, is the annual 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 2017–2018 room selection, this will be done through an online process that will allow students to participate via the Berklee Hub. 

The 2017–2018 Continuing Student Housing Application will be available in April. 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.
