First Year Abroad students are required to stay in housing arranged by Berklee.

Living together as a cohort of students provides a safe and comfortable environment while abroad.

Several months before the program begins, students will be asked to submit their housing preferences, including preferred room type (single or double) and roommate (if applicable). Submitting your housing preferences is not a guarantee that you will be assigned your preferred housing option. Once assignments are made, changes may be considered on a case-by-case basis and cannot be guaranteed.

Your housing reservation will be made by Berklee.

If you would like to request specific housing accommodations due to a disability, please contact the office of Accessibility Resources: accessibilityresources@berklee.edu.

Getting to Campus

The Berklee campus is located approximately 1.5 miles from the student residence. Students can bike, walk or take the public bus to school.

  • Bike: Many students take advantage of Valenbisi, Valencia’s public bike-sharing system. For approximately 30 euros students can sign up for a yearly pass that allows them unlimited use of bicycles, with the first half hour of each trip being free. There are Valenbisi stations located all around the city, including several that are close to the residence and to the campus.
  • Walk: Valencia is known for its beautiful weather! Walking is a great way to travel to campus, while getting some exercise and soaking in the sun. Average travel time is 20-25 minutes.
  • Bus: There are public buses that easily connect the residence with our campus. Line 99 of the local EMT bus system has an average travel time of 20 minutes between the residence and the stop at El Saler mall, which is only 5 minutes walking distance from campus.
