Computer Labs

ELA’s computer labs have plenty of iMacs and printers available for student use, so students will never have to worry about getting their papers and projects in on time. Additionally, there is a copier by the mailboxes. Students can make copies by paying with a debit/credit card, or your Emerson ID with EC Cash or print credits.


Mail is sorted and placed into the mailboxes (4th floor) by staff. Students will receive email notification when they receive packages and can pick up their mail at the Security Desk on the 2nd floor. If you have any questions, email emersonla [at]


For those hard-earned study breaks, there are large-screen televisions with cable TV available in the kitchen and the lounge area.

ELA houses a multi-purpose event space, screening rooms, retail space on street level for any shopping needs, and an expansive park-like outdoor terrace, so there is never a shortage of things to do. 

Fitness Center

Students can stay in shape and get grounded at the Fitness Center and the Yoga and Meditation room, which are open every day from 6 am-midnight. 


With ELA’s spacious underground garage, parking is one thing students will never have to worry about.

Performance & Rehearsal Studios

Our performance and rehearsal studios are complete with dance floors, professional lighting, and soundproofing, so students can hone their talents as actors, singers, and dancers.

Production Suites

The audio mixing suite is optimal for Visual and Media Arts majors’ post-production projects. This suite has a digital mixing board and Pro Tools 192 system, which enable students to edit with up to 64 different audio tracks. There are additional post-production rooms and editing suites throughout the building.


Security guards will be stationed inside the building to ensure safety 24 hours a day/7 days a week. 

Screening Room

The Bright Family Screening Room West is the perfect venue to hold film screenings for not just students, faculty, and staff, but for the public as well.
