There is no dining hall at ELA. The fall and spring housing cost includes $1800 in Board Bucks, which students can use to buy meals at the Emerson Cafe on site or at neighborhood restaurants.
There will be a common kitchen on the fifth floor for student use. There will be no pots, pans, flatware, glassware or dishes however. Students who wish to cook meals should either pack these items or plan to buy kitchenware on arrival to Los Angeles. There will be 20 x 20 dry storage boxes in the kitchen to store these items—one box per suite, which can encompass 4–5 students sharing a box.
- Students should not leave anything out in the community kitchen area or it will be thrown away.
- Students should keep the area clean and wash their dishes.
