Student Services

Large group of happy students

From acceptance to graduation to the launch of one’s career in music, students have many needs and questions along the way. Berklee College of Music meets those needs and answers those questions with a system of student services that simultaneously empowers students to take responsibility for their own education while also providing a level of support that helps to ensure that students’ experience at the world’s leading college for contemporary music is of the highest quality.

The Student Affairs team in Valencia seeks to provide students with the services and support systems needed to ensure their well-being and ultimately their success. Furthermore, we seek to enrich the student experience by cultivating active leaders, community builders and global citizens through a wealth of extracurricular opportunities for growth and development.

In this section you will find all relevant information regarding Student Services and Policies applicable to all Berklee students, as well as more specific and relevant information for students on the Valencia campus, regardless of whether you are enrolled for two weeks, a semester, a year or even longer.


Undergraduate students

Undergraduate students are required to stay in housing arranged by Berklee. Visit the links below for more information on housing for the two specific undergraduate programs.

*Please note that in addition to housing Berklee’s undergraduate students, Livensa Living Valencia Marina Real lodges students from Berklee’s non-residential programs as well as students from other academic institutions. Therefore, room availability is limited. Housing at Livensa will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis upon receipt of the program deposit.

Berklee will provide students with alternative accommodation if the appropriate lodging for Berklee undergraduate students is no longer available at Livensa. Should you be provided with alternative housing, please keep in mind that the amenities and location may vary. More information will become available to you as soon as possible once the need for alternative housing is confirmed.

Graduate and Summer students

Students in Graduate Programs and our Summer Performance Program must arrange their own housing, with options ranging from finding an apartment to staying at a nearby private student residence hall.

The Valencia campus does not offer student housing directly, but there are many options available for students to choose from. Students can rent a room in a private apartment or rent an entire apartment and arrange to share with classmates. There are also several student residences near campus where students can stay in individual or double rooms, with or without meal plans.

Berklee does not provide any professional legal and/or real estate advice and is therefore not liable for the services carried out by any of these external agencies.

Living in Valencia

Valencia is a large city, and you can choose to live near the beach, near campus, in the center, or in one of several up-and-coming neighborhoods. You should consider how far you want to live from campus, and also if you want to walk, ride a bike or take public transportation. The public transportation system in Valencia is well developed, with various subway lines and an extensive bus system.
