Fitness and Recreation

The Boston Conservatory has a unique relationship with Northeastern University that offers students the option to purchase a 9-month, 12-month, spring semester only, or summer only, Fitness and Recreation Membership to their fitness facilities. The facilities are located on Northeastern's campus just a few blocks away from the Conservatory.

Membership provides access to the following:

  • Marino Center, offering a variety of equipment including stair-climbers, treadmills, upright and recumbent exercise bikes, cross-country ski machines, rowing ergometers, elliptical climbers, basketball courts, track, sauna and locker rooms
  • Cabot Gym, offering an indoor pool
  • Access to fitness classes: Students must register for these classes which cost a one-time fee of $50 per semester. Students also must provide Northeastern University Campus Recreation with a physician waiver form stating they can participate in group exercise classes.

Please visit for more detailed information about locations, hours, classes, and equipment.

ALL STUDENTS (regardless of whether you live on- or off-campus) have the OPTION to purchase the Fitness and Recreation Membership.

Huntington Avenue YMCA

Another fitness option for students is to purchase a membership at the Hungtinton Avenue YMCA, which is also located in close proximity to campus. Membership at the YMCA includes access to cardio and strength-training equipment, fitness classes, and the ability to utilize 13 YMCA locations in greater Boston. Membership can be paid on a monthly basis and there is no contract. This may be a good option for those students seeking a more flexible arrangement or for students who reside further away from campus. For more information, please visit the YMCA website. When signing up, be sure to specify that you are a Boston Conservatory student.
