Berklee College of Music

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  Berklee College of Music

Established in 1945, Berklee College of Music has been attended by many famous musicians. And it also has a haunted dorm, a 1900s former apartment building that eventually was remodeled into the Sherry Biltmore Hotel. When the hotel caught fire in 1963, started by a boy playing with matches, many lives were lost. Some of their spirits remain here in the building, which has since become a Berklee dorm. Apparitions, shadows and odd noises have been reported by students, and once in a while something really strange happens, like a TV that flew across the room.
