Due to limited availability, Emerson College unfortunately cannot guarantee on-campus housing to exchange students. Exchange students interested in on-campus housing should submit a non-guarantee housing application following their admission to Emerson College. As an alternative, all exchange students are advised to secure their own, off-campus housing in the Boston area. Exchange students are encouraged to review Emerson’s Off-campus Housing website for international students.

Please note: Rental scams are possible. Students should never send money via wire transfer to rental agents.

Mandatory Health Insurance and Immunizations

Per Massachusetts state law, exchange students must carry U.S.-based health insurance. Insurance from your home country is not acceptable. Therefore, all exchange students will automatically be registered and billed for the Emerson Student Health Insurance Plan. Up-to-date costs for the Emerson Student Health Insurance Plan can be found on the University Health Plans website. Students may request to waive the Emerson Student Health Insurance Plan, but will need to provide confirmation that they have an alternative health insurance plan that meets all legal requirements.
