Living in Boston

At Emerson College we believe that Boston is the best city in the world. We hope that the moment you step foot on campus you will experience the excitement and savor the spirit of opportunity that Boston has to offer. Before you move Boston, there are a few things you should know:

  • Emerson’s location: We are located in the Theatre District, which is in the heart of downtown Boston. Our campus is only a few blocks away from historic Beacon Hill and lively Chinatown
  • Accessibly around the city: We are accessible by our subway/street trolley system, known locally as the “T.” To find your way to campus on the T you can utilize the Green, Red, or Orange lines. You can learn more about the MBTA Semester T Pass through Off-Campus Student Services. The deadline to sign up for the semester pass is July 30, 2013.
  • Employment: If you’re looking for a part-time job that is flexible enough to work around your class schedule, check out the student employment section of our website. Please note: students cannot begin applying for jobs until the end of August. Graduate students registered for at least a half-time course load (minimum of 4 credits for graduate students) are eligible to work on-campus through the student employment program.
