Student Life

Campus life

Berklee’s Valencia whole campus is contained in one long building within the City of Arts and Sciences complex. Given the size, Valencia has a much smaller student body than the Boston campus. The facilities and recording spaces in Valencia are comparable to the scoring stage and studios found inside Berklee Boston’s newest building at 160 Massachusetts Avenue. Study Abroad students also have the option of completing a Minor in Music Technology, a program that is exclusive to the Berklee Valencia study abroad experience.
