Fall Orientation

Housing Resources for Transfer Students

Students Scheduled to Live Off Campus in Fall 2015 Who Wish to Participate in Orientation

New Student Orientation will occur Monday, August 24 through Saturday, August 29. Although most off-campus apartment leases begin on or around the first of each month, there are exceptions. As you begin your housing search, please consider seeking a lease start date to allow you the ability to participate fully in the Fall 2015 new student orientation program by requesting a lease start date before August 24.  

For assistance in conducting your off-campus housing search, please visit Off-Campus Student Services and contact our Off-Campus Student Services Office at 617-824-7863 or email ocss@emerson.edu.

Transfer students are encouraged to participate in the full new student orientation program that begins on August 24.

If you are unable to attend the New Student Orientation program from Monday, August 24 to Saturday, August 29 due to a September 1 off-campus lease start date, you are invited to attend a one-day Fall Orientation session on Tuesday, September 1. Please note that this is not an identical program to the New Student Orientation program offered the previous week but will provide students with an opportunity to participate in programs and sessions designed to assist students in their transition to Emerson College and the City of Boston.

Registration information to participate in the one-day New Student Orientation program will be mailed to students in early June. Register online »

The deadline to enroll in this program will be August 14.
