New England Conservatory's new Student Life and Performance Center will provide students and faculty with state-of-the-art facilities commensurate with our standing as a world-class school of music and performance center. As such, it will accommodate the needs for rehearsal, lesson, practice, and classroom space of our resident students as well as the nonresident students participating in Preparatory and Continuing Education programs.
- The Center will place a College student residence atop a student life complex.
- It will include a new state-of-the-art library, where our collections will have a safe and accessible home and research can be done with all the benefits of interactive technology.
- The Center will house an Opera Studio with backstage and dressing rooms, an orchestra rehearsal room, and large ensemble room.
- The student residence will have 252 student beds, a dining hall, and a commons area.
"The new building will dramatically change the NEC experience for the school's students and faculty, will enhance the image of the Conservatory in Boston and beyond, and will be something for all alumni to be very proud of."--Deborah Bennett Elfers '82
