Vice president for student affairs/dean of students Betsy Newman and her staff are always available to provide you and your family with whatever assistance you require to ensure your success at Berklee. This office oversees all departments housed within the Division of Student Affairs.
We look forward to welcoming you to the neighborhood. Berklee has a number of residence halls close to campus buildings, as well as facilities for dining, practicing your music, and socializing, as well as laundry, wi-fi, and other amenities. Berklee’s housing and residence life staff works to foster the supportive community that defines the Berklee environment.
Music education is what brings students to Berklee, but most Berklee students are interested in engaging in music and other activities outside of the classroom, from student clubs and student-run enterprises to student government and more.
- Career Development Center
Connect with the Career Development Center (CDC) for expert guidance, leading-edge resources, engaging connections, and professional development programs/events aimed at helping you achieve your music career goals through the Berklee Career Manager platform. The CDC's focus is on music career management and helping students/alumni access resources and activities that are applicable to their career paths.
The mission of the LiveWell Program is to enhance each student's well-being. This is accomplished by helping students develop and maintain positive self-management skills through education and safe and enjoyable experiences. These skills are especially geared toward long and rich careers in music.
As a Berklee student, you are never alone. Any student at Berklee—including first-year students, international students, and students with disabilities—can take advantage of the Counseling and Advising Center’s support services, which include academic advising and personal counseling.
