Sexual Assault Resources

Resources for Awareness, Prevention, and Support

Emerson College encourages any student who has been sexually assaulted to report the incident to the College and appropriate police department. It is important to seek medical care and treatment to minimize your risk of HIV exposure, sexually transmitted infections and for women, pregnancy.

After a sexual assault, it’s not uncommon to feel fearful, confused, guilty, ashamed or isolated. The College offers counseling and support for students through Counseling and Psychological Services (ECAPS) and our Center for Health and Wellness.

Below is a list of on and off campus resources, including emergency numbers, hospital information, and crisis hotlines.

Touch screen option: Hit the "Student ID" option and select Emerson from the list of icons. Pay as you would with a credit card.
Pay With Vouchers
Emerson College has a contract with a local taxi service that provides a voucher program. If you know you will be out after dark and would prefer to come back to campus by taxi rather than public transport, you may sign out a voucher at the EC Police Department Office. The cost will be billed to your student account.

For this option, please call the number listed in the voucher only, as other taxi companies will not honor the voucher. The taxi cab response time will depend on weather conditions, time of day/night, and/or day of the week.
