We are thrilled to be opening a new Residence Hall this fall in our Student Life and Performance Center. The Residence Hall (aka ResHall) will be floors 4-10 of the building which will also include 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.
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.
