There's a lot to like about living on campus.
You won't find the sophisticated city of Boston, with its 250,000 other college students, outside your front door everywhere.
You won't find a 17-acre campus, lush with trees and brick buildings everywhere. You won't find Fenway Park just down the street everywhere. But you'll find it all at Emmanuel College.
Each day presents the opportunity to meet new people and the convenience of being so close to class with no commute time. Another plus? Living on campus is truly the most affordable way to live while attending college in the city of Boston.
Living spaces for your lifestyle.

From Boston to Orlando
"My time at Emmanuel has been what I would consider some of the most beneficial, memorable, and enjoyable years of my life. Although I will miss calling 400 Fenway my home, I am so excited for what is next to come with an opportunity working for The Walt Disney Company. I will never forget the moment I got the email that I got the role and celebrated with my friends on campus!" - Christian Bettinelli '23

Swinging into friends at Lawn on EC
"This picture was taken at Lawn on EC back in 2021. It was one of the first events after coming back from the virtual semester, so everyone was really excited to see each other! My friend Kayla and I went around to all the little activities they had at Lawn on EC which included the light up swings, axe throwing, and bull riding! It honestly felt like we never left!" - Brianna Chu

Checking out Fan Pier on the Harbor
I love going to Fan Pier Park in Boston’s Seaport District. There is a pavilion roof deck that has amazing views of the harbor.

Coworkers turned friends!
"It was always so much fun working in the Office of Involvement. I've learned a lot of transferable skills that will come in handy as I'm pursuing a career in higher education at Harvard Graduate School of Education next fall! This picture was taken during President Boyd's Inauguration, very busy day, but it was an unforgettable, amazing experience because of the people I was with! " - Ro Chavez

Performer turned into Director
"Finding such an amazing group of friends while performing and working with the theater program has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met otherwise from our campus and the rest of the COF. Then directing my first show ever back in February, was such an amazing experience, working with the talented people we have within the program!" - Kelley Kazorek

A Whole City Within Reach
My favorite thing to do around Boston is definitely explore the city with my friends. Whether it’s going to Red Sox games with my friends, grabbing a coffee at Tatte or walking around Newbury Street, I love that we have the whole city of Boston at our reach.

Friends for Life
One of my favorite memories of my first year on campus was making friends with the guys who lived in my hallway. It took me a few months to find the right group for me, but once I did I knew that I had found some friends for life! Every few weeks we would all gather in my room for a movie night, luckily we held one last movie night before we left for spring break, not knowing that we wouldn’t see each other for several months.

A Cappella Fun Times
"This is a favorite memory of mine with some of my best friends in For Good Measure after our spring concert last year. I joined this a cappella group because I love to sing but I had no idea how many great memories would come from that decision. I am super grateful I made the decision to join this group because I made so many friends while also getting the opportunity to do something that I love!" - Sam Jones

Moonlight Breakfast Tradition!
One of my favorite on campus traditions is Moonlight Breakfast hosted by the Emmanuel College Programming Team (ECPT). It is one of the many events on campus that focuses on building community while also having fun, especially before finals season. We got to stuff little stuffed animals, have breakfast as a late night meal, while having the opportunity to win some prizes (like Emmanuel gear or a flatscreen TV).

SOWA Winter Festival
My favorite memory of my first year on campus was exploring Boston and trying all different types of food. I loved walking around Boston; either to the Boston Public Library on a sunny day, just down the street along the Muddy River, or around the South End at the Winter Festival. There was always something to do and new to eat.

I always try to study and catch up on work outside as much as possible during the warm months. Secluded enough by the trees, but also still in the heart of campus, the picnic tables next to the Quad might just be my favorite spot!

As a student at Emmanuel, you get free access to both the Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum! I take advantage of this a lot with my friends and we enjoy the beautiful garden and amazing artwork on display at the Isabella Stewart Gardner.

Christmas in Boston
My first year at Emmanuel has brought so many great memories. Most of my memories have been with the great friends I’ve made here. One specific memory with my friends here was when we went out and explored the city before we all went home for Christmas break. We had planned a secret Santa between us but decided to go out to dinner off campus before. It was great to get off campus and explore the city, especially when it is all lit up for the holiday! In the Faneuil Hall area there were street performances that we stopped and watched and just enjoyed our time off campus. It was a great way to end the semester and escape the finals season before we all went home for break!

Tourists for a Day
My favorite memory of my first year on campus was the day my friends and I went for a photoshoot after our classes. We all got dressed up and had a tourist day during the Fall semester so we could see what was around campus. Rather than choosing destinations we just walked. In our time out we managed to hit a majority of the tourist spots in the EC area. During our little adventure we saw the Prudential Center, the Boston Public Library, Newbury Street and Fenway Park. The next day our feet had been a bit sore, but that was nothing a little girls night in couldn’t fix. In the end we got super cute photos, a little taste of what Boston has to offer, and an unbreakable bond with new friends, which is all I could ever ask for.

One of my fondest fall memories at EC was getting tickets to a Red Sox game in September with a bunch of my friends! It was so fun to be together and be a part of a huge tradition that comes with being in Boston, cheering on the Sox!
