Our new Residence Hall opened in Fall 2017 in the Student Life and Performance Center. The Residence Hall comprises floors 4-10 of the building which also includes the library, dining commons, and rehearsal spaces.
All incoming undergraduate students, including transfers, are required to live in the Residence Hall for both their first and second years of study at NEC. Undergraduate students who are married, over age 21, or living at home with parent(s) at their permanent address in the Boston area may request an exemption from this requirement. Spring applicants will be granted housing based on availability and are not guaranteed housing for more than one semester. Incoming graduate students who wish to live in the Residence Hall may also apply to live on campus and will be given space based on their date and time of deposit and application. Admitted students who need to apply for housing, please visit this page.
The Residence Hall is staffed by nine full-time student and paraprofessional staff members, Resident Assistants (RAs) and Graduate Assistants (GAs), along with one full-time professional staff member, the Resident Director. Our student staff members work to create a communal environment within the Residence Hall through personal interaction with their peers and by sponsoring creative programs to support the philosophy and objectives of Residence Life at New England Conservatory.
