Leveraging the people and places of Boston for inspiration, students in the English Department's "Ethics in Documentary Film" course grapple with the challenges and questions raised by creative work.
Loretto Hall is a five-story, non-air conditioned residence hall housing approximately 280 students. This is a co-ed building by floor and part of Emmanuel's first-year residential experience.
Each floor houses 30 to 60 residents who share single-sex bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchens.
Our residence halls have a variety of amenities, including:
Residence Hall Council (RHC)
RHC is an opportunity to get involved in your hall. The aim of the council is to provide for the needs of the residential population while also serving as a representative body.
Staff is available to assist with room re-entry if you forget your ID.
Convenient on-campus locations for sending and receiving mail.
Housekeeping and maintenance
A crew of housekeeping personnel clean the bathrooms and common areas daily. If something breaks in your room, you can put in a work order with your RA and it will be fixed by our Facilities Department.
Emmanuel offers residential living communities to help maximize your college living and learning experiences.
Controlled visitation hours and regulations help to accommodate resident's desire for visitation as well as protect their right to privacy.
