Traveling to Berklee
Berklee is conveniently located in the heart of Boston and is accessible from all of the city's major highways and via air, train, bus, and car. Find directions and a campus map.
Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their airline regarding instrument transportation policies. Keep in mind that instrument cases may be searched thoroughly by airport personnel, with or without the student present. If you must fly with your instrument, do not bring it in a soft case or gig bag, even if you know it will fit in the overhead compartment. A hard case will better protect the instrument during transportation.
Label the hard case with your name and phone number as well as Berklee’s address (in case you become separated from it). You may wish to include “fragile” stickers on the outside of the case and a note inside the case indicating that airport security should take special care when handling the instrument for luggage inspection. If your instrument is valuable, please make sure it is insured.
Berklee partners with several hotels on our campus to provide our guests with discount rates. Rates are based on availability and vary by season. Find information on hotels in the area. Please contact the hotels directly for detailed rate information.
All major U.S. airlines have policies in place related to flights for “unaccompanied minors” and they may charge a separate fee for unaccompanied minors to fly. We recommend that parents check with the airline before booking a flight to determine what requirements may apply to your minor/child.
By agreement with the City of Boston, students are not allowed to park automobiles on the streets in the vicinity of the college. There are nearby parking garages, but they can be extremely expensive. There is also metered street parking in the neighborhood for shorter parking stints. Fortunately, there are many sights within walking distance of campus and the subway and buses will get you to just about anywhere you’d want to go in Boston and the nearby area.
