Berklee Summer Programs: Safety and Security

Updated on June 5th, 2023

Berklee is located in one of the best and liveliest areas in the city. However, as in any urban setting, it is necessary to exercise caution and common sense. We stress neighborhood and residence hall safety and security with Summer Programs students. Berklee's Public Safety Department is responsible for campus safety, security, law enforcement, and emergency response on campus. It is the department's mission to provide a comprehensive program of services to help ensure that the campus remains a safe environment in which to live, study, and work. Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To read more about Public Safety, please visit

Berklee takes pride in treating Summer Programs attendees as real college students in order to give them a true Berklee experience. We strive to give them as much independence as possible, so students will be walking to class through Berklee's urban campus unattended, and on the weekends and in the evenings they will have some spare time. It is important to be sure that students are responsible enough to handle this independence when deciding whether to attend one of our programs.

Public Safety Escorts

Your safety on campus is our number one priority. We offer free Public Safety escorts for Summer Programs students that are available 24 hours a day. During busy times, there may be a wait, so please plan ahead. If there is an emergency, you can always call 911 to reach Boston Police. We also have Police Officers at Berklee and our on-site Public Safety Department.
