Boston Campus

Berklee's Boston campus, home to Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee, pulses with music, theater, dance, and artistic energy. Located in the city's vibrant Back Bay neighborhood, the campus is an ideal place to begin developing your lifelong professional network with artists and creative thinkers who come to this diverse, international hub from all over the world.

As a Berklee student on the Boston campus, you'll join a close-knit creative community in a world-class university city. A microcosm of the entertainment industry, the campus offers practice and rehearsal rooms, dance studios, stages, and top-of-the-line recording studios for anything from an intimate solo performance to a 50-piece film scoring orchestra recording to picture.

Boston is large enough to draw the world's best talent to its stages but small enough to facilitate the formation of strong bonds among its artistic community. Berklee students are central to that community and are the driving force behind popular annual events such as the Boston Art & Music Soul (BAMS) Festival and the expansive Summer in the City concert series, in which they provide the soundtrack to summer in the area.

Beyond campus, Boston offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor recreation, dining, shopping, sports, and nightlife. Boston is also home to extraordinary art and science museums, historic houses of worship, vibrant theater, unique galleries and markets, and countless opportunities for exploration and adventure on land or sea (or both, via one of Boston's popular "duck boat" tours).

Consistently ranked "America’s smartest city" by Forbes, Boston is at the forefront of innovation in education, technology, and the arts, so, as a Berklee student, opportunities for inspiration, collaboration, and personal growth are all around you.
