Residence Life at
the TMC fosters a strong sense of community among Fellows, who
quickly adapt to both the rigorous work required of them, but also
an active social and recreational life.
Housing is provided for TMC Fellows in the dormitory of the Miss Hall's School in Pittsfield, Massachusetts , which is located 7 miles from the Tanglewood grounds. Some off-campus housing may be available. A free, hourly bus runs between the two locations. Fellows are welcome and strongly encouraged to bring their own cars, both for their own daily transportation and to explore the many attractions in the Berkshires.
The residential facilities consist primarily of double-room accommodations. A limited number of single rooms are assigned to Fellows through a lottery system. Other facilities at Miss Hall's School include performance and rehearsal spaces, a computer lab with internet access as well as WiFi, TV lounge, free laundry facilities, tennis courts, and a basketball court, and athletic fields, where Fellows often enjoy games of soccer and ultimate frisbee.
Tanglewood's neighbor in the Berkshires, the world-famous Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, is makes it possible for interested TMC fellows to participate in yoga classes at Miss Hall's School for reduced fees.
