At Emerson, the city is your home—but you’ll also find the reassuring feel of a caring campus community. Living in one of our five on-campus residence halls will give you the opportunity to build your personal network and develop lasting friendships. Resident assistants and residence directors are here to guide you.

Thanks to the more than 100 student organizations on campus, students truly shape our community. Join like-minded friends in sponsoring events, putting on productions, attending workshops, and running publications. You’ll gain real-life, hands-on experiences while honing your leadership skills and embracing campus life.

More than 200 Emerson student-athletes compete on one of our 14 NCAA Division III sports teams. Watching a basketball game or cheering on our lacrosse team is a great way to show your Lion pride. Our Fitness Center, group classes, and intramurals are also available.

The College makes our students’ health and well-being a priority. Wellness Center staff assist students in creating healthy habits and promote a culture of wellness in the Emerson community.

Our close-knit community expands to our campuses in Los Angeles and the Netherlands. Students have the opportunity to live and learn at Emerson Los Angeles and Kasteel Well for a semester.

All this buzz of activity takes place in a collaborative and vivacious setting, where Emerson students share experiences of a lifetime.
