At Emerson, you have your pick of several on-campus dining options with menus designed to suit varied tastes and dietary preferences. Grab a bite to eat with friends, pick up a snack before class, or sit down to enjoy a proper dinner. If you’re in a rush, you can even take your meals to go and fuel your study sessions wherever they may be.

As a student on our Boston campus, you can choose among the Dining Center and Center Stage, the Max, Paramount Cafe, or Backstage Cafe. Residential students have a meal plan that makes eating convenient and affordable. Our chefs and staff prepare excellent food from scratch with whole ingredients, which are often locally sourced. Many café options are customizable to meet your personal dietary goals.

In addition to all Emerson offers, Boston itself has a fantastic food scene. We’re an urban college, which means you will find what big cities offer—great food at restaurants, street vendors, food trucks, and cafes.

We also partner with dozens of restaurants close to campus that welcome our student community and accept Emerson College Cash (ECCash). From sandwich and burrito shops to pizza joints and coffee spots, you can easily find whatever it is that you crave.
