Applicants who are 15 and older will be sent information and an application for residence hall housing once accepted to the program. Most program participants elect to stay in the Berklee residence halls; however, space is limited. To optimize your chances for on-campus housing, you must return the housing application immediately upon receiving it.
To be eligible to live in the residence hall, you must be 15 years of age by the start of the program. Residence hall housing is not offered to students younger than 15. If you apply to the program after mid-May, please call the Housing Office at 617 747-2292 to find out if residence hall space is still available.
