Summer Housing

Emmanuel College offers college students housing during the summer in the heart of Boston's dynamic Fenway neighborhood.

Emmanuel opens its residence hall doors to undergraduate and graduate students from Emmanuel and other colleges and universities who are taking courses, interning or working in the Boston area for the summer. Our summer housing options are in the heart of the city and conveniently located near subway and bus lines to get you wherever you need to go. While you are here, you can take advantage of Boston's reputation as a cultural capital with world-class recreational and entertainment options right at your fingertips.

In order to be eligible, summer residents must be a current college or university student, at least 18 years of age, and must provide documentation of an internship or enrollment in summer courses.

Summer 2020 Dates

Housing for Summer 2020 will be available starting Sunday, May 17, and runs through mid-August. You have the flexibility to schedule your stay based on your needs: If you are in town for an eight-week internship, you can provide the dates on your housing application and submit payment for only those days.

Please note the following:

  • Minimum stay is 1 week (7 days) and rates are based on a week. Partial weeks will not be prorated.
  • Summer residents must check-in on Sundays.

Summer 2020 Housing Options

Emmanuel is pleased to offer two different on-campus housing options to meet the needs of our prospective summer residents. Regardless of the option you choose, all Emmanuel summer guests have perks such as 24/7 staffing of residence hall front desks, a robust Wi-Fi network and free access to our Fitness Centers during regular hours.

Contemporary - Available within our brand new, air-conditioned, apartment-style residence hall. Comprised of fully furnished two-bed, two-bath, four-occupant apartments and single occupant studios, both with full kitchens as well as in-unit washers and dryers. The ground floor of this building also features a Dunkin', fitness center, indoor bicycle storage, and a lounge with small conference rooms.

New for 2020 - Emmanuel will offer single occupancy bedrooms within the two-bed, two-bath apartments for those who want to enjoy the privacy of a private bedroom but share a common living space, at a discounted rate. (If you choose this option, you may select a suitemate, or have Residence Life match you with another summer guest.)

For groups of four students looking to live together, Emmanuel is also offering a special rate for fully occupied, two-bed, two-bath apartments. Individuals must select this option on the application and provide the names of the other intended residents. Please note that if someone in the group cancels, the group is no longer eligible for the special rate. Additionally, groups of individual applicants will not be formed by Residence Life; this is the sole responsibility of the applicants.

Traditional - Available within one of our three traditional, corridor-style, non-air conditioned residence halls. Comprised primarily of double-occupancy bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities and a full hall kitchen. Single spaces are also available. Coin-operated laundry facilities are located within each building, along with stocked food and beverage vending machines for quick snacks throughout your stay.

Below find the summer 2020 rates for both our cotemporary and traditional housing options. A $250 non-refundable housing deposit is due within 48 hours of receipt of housing confirmation.

The remainder of your balance, including parking charges, must be paid in full by May 1st, regardless of your arrival date. Any summer residents approved for housing after the May 1st deadline must pay their housing charges in full within 48 hours of receipt of housing confirmation.
