Mission and Vision


We aim to address short- and long-term strategic initiatives for Berklee's physical infrastructure by (1) identifying needs for additional space or major renovations to existing facilities, (2) determining how new space will be utilized, and (3) assessing neighborhood real estate opportunities for possible use by the College and Conservatory.


The scale of the institution is determined by our ability to attract students who can benefit from the Berklee experience and by our capacity to support them with quality facilities and infrastructure.

  • The acquisition of new facilities relieves overcrowding and strain on current classrooms, studios, ensemble rooms, and performance spaces.
  • The learning environment is enhanced by new student life facilities, faculty offices, and space for student/faculty interaction, and by meeting the technology needs of the curriculum.
  • The teaching, learning, living, and working needs of a 21st-century music education shape the design of facilities and supporting services.
  • Additional quality housing is available to meet student needs.
  • Any future growth of the on-campus student community is consciously planned and predicated on adequate facilities and infrastructure.
