    Campus Safety

    I have always felt very safe at NEC.

    Greek Life


    Great for these types of students

    Aspiring musicians who have immense talent and are self-motivated. Those who don't want to be confined by a university's academic requirements.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Everything is unusual at NEC!

    What to do for fun

    Go out and adventure in Boston; don't stay stuck in one block of NEC.

    Tips for prospective students


    In three sentences

    The Conservatory is an inspirational environment that fosters incredible talent without the cut-throat aura that most top music schools come with. As a top Music school in the world, the professors come from near and far with a level of expertise that is hard to match. While many of its facilities could use some love (updating, that is), there is still an enjoyable aspect to its immense history.
