During your first academic year in Paris, you'll live in the heart of urban Paris among other students in an efficiency apartment building called Les Estudines République at 100 Rue Oberkampf. It is a short walk or an easy Metro ride to the PCA campus. Each efficiency apartment has a kitchenette and comes fully furnished; bedding, linens, and cooking utensils are all provided. Following this first year, you will have the option to either stay in the Estudines facility, or find your own housing elsewhere in Paris.


For three summers in the program, you'll be living in one of Emerson's residence halls in the heart of Boston. Our urban campus encompasses a section of Boylston Street, parts of the renowned Theater District, and other spaces downtown. This means you'll have access to our state-of-the-art facilities, shared spaces, dining hall, and more, all while being just steps away from the excitements of the city.

Kasteel Well

Kasteel Well is Emerson's restored 14th-century medieval castle in The Netherlands, and the place you'll call home for your third summer in the program. Here you'll be greeted with a change of scenery, from city to country: The village of Well is a small town in the Dutch countryside filled with numerous walking and cycling paths, idyllic pastures filled with horses and sheep, and beautiful landscapes.
