On-Campus Housing

All Bachelor of Music and Undergraduate Diploma students are required to live in the campus Residence Hall for their first four semesters of enrollment at NEC. Limited residence hall spaces are usually available for 3rd- and 4th-year undergraduates and graduate students. 

The Residence Hall offers suites, single rooms, and double rooms. 75% of Residence Hall rooms are doubles, and most students share their room with a roommate. Most first-year students are placed in doubles.
