Campus Tour Details
We ask that all visitors to campus be fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated, you must receive a negative PCR test result within 72 hours prior to your visit or a rapid antigen test within 24 hours prior.
We ask that you do not visit campus if you:
- are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19;
- have come in close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19;
- are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test; or
- have been directed to quarantine by a health care provider or public official.
Masks are required to be worn indoors at all times during your visit, regardless of vaccination or negative test results. Berklee does not supply masks; you must bring your own mask and wear it over your nose and mouth at all times.
We want all of our campus guests to feel welcomed, comfortable and safe. At Berklee we embrace difference and celebrate the rich diversity of our students, faculty, staff, and prospective students and families. We ask that all of our visitors join us in respecting and valuing this principle.
Best Times to Visit
There's almost always something special going on at Berklee: visiting artist clinics, well-known alumni stopping by to give a concert, or a series of student performances. It’s also best to visit when classes are in session so you can get a feel for the full Berklee experience. Check out the events calendar and our academic calendar to see what’s going on when you’re planning to visit.
We do not offer tours for the general public. All of our campus tours are only for prospective students and their families. If you would like to learn more about the History of Berklee, you can explore that on our website.
Boston has a diverse climate, and tours run in all types of weather conditions. Though tours are rarely canceled due to weather conditions, we will communicate any changes to you in the event of inclement weather.
