Campus Center

Meeting Spaces

Booking A Room

Our meeting rooms can be utilized for a variety of events, from general meetings to auditions to interviews. Spaces within the Campus Center may only be reserved by members of the Emerson College community. We only accept reservation requests for the current semester. At the end of each semester, we will begin accepting reservations for the following semester. You may book a room as a walk-in, pending availability, if you have an immediate need for space, or you can book online through SpaceBook.

Due to fire code limitations, each of our spaces has a fixed maximum capacity, so additional tables or chairs cannot be moved into our meeting rooms. For the Cabaret and Multipurpose Room, capacity limits may be reduced for setups using additional tables or other fixtures. These limits should be considered when booking a space.
