  • Diversity and Inclusion

    The Office for Diversity and Inclusion was established to provide support for Berklee’s diverse community. Our responsibility is to integrate the variety of cultural values and perspectives at Berklee into what we do at all levels, through policy development, resources and education, and sponsorship of initiatives for staff, faculty, and students. 

  • Community Standards

    The college determines, publishes, and makes known its rules and regulations concerning student and organizational conduct, as well as department- and program-specific policies, and strives to provide students with a clear understanding of all academic requirements and policies.

  • Housing and Residential Life

    We look forward to welcoming you to the neighborhood. Berklee has a number of residence halls close to campus buildings in addition to 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.

  • Student Activities

    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.
