Living on-campus is a great opportunity for students to grow as artists and citizens. More than just a convenience, it is an important part of the social and academic lives of students. Students who live on-campus do better academically, in part due to the easy access to support services. In addition, living in close proximity to other students who are taking the same classes helps to develop social networks that contribute to a successful college experience.

By living on-campus you will interact with people who are very talented and unique. You will also meet people whose experiences, values, and priorities are different from yours. This is your first step toward broadening your horizons as a student and an artist. Residential Life at The Boston Conservatory is a supportive community where there is an appreciation of individual differences and a respect for individual rights.

On-campus housing at The Boston Conservatory consists of five historic brownstones on The Fenway in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. All of these buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Several types of rooms are available to undergraduate students: quints, quads, triples, doubles, and singles (extra charge).
