New Residence Hall

The New Residence Hall is an 18-story, apartment-style residence hall housing approximately 690 upper-class students.

The New Residence Hall is Emmanuel's first non-traditional housing option for our upper-class students. Opened in August 2018, this LEED-certified building features contemporary apartment-style living spaces.

The combination of two-bedroom (four students) and studio (one student) units houses 690 students. Each furnished apartment is also equipped with a washer and dryer, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, and private bathrooms.

FIRST FLOOR - The spaces in the first floor Atrium are available to all members of the Emmanuel community. These spaces include:

  • The Plaza - The open-air Plaza serves as a central gathering place on the residential side of campus—meet after class to discuss dinner plans or just experience the energy of the EC community
  • Brookline Avenue Patio - Bring a book or a laptop and enjoy some fresh air (along with your Dunkin' Donuts coffee)
  • Dunkin' Donuts - Located across from Joe Di's, Dunkin' has all your local favorites available!
  • Joe Di's Food Mart - This new convenience store provides to-go meal options, snacks, groceries and other necessities
  • Margaret L. McKenna '83 Media Center - Located in the center of the Atrium, the Margaret L. McKenna '83 Media Center is an all-purpose room equipped with flat-panel displays for studying, meeting and presentations
  • The Plaza Lounge, Brookline Avenue Lounge and Group Study Rooms - The New Residence Hall includes space for independent study and group projects, complete with printers
  • Fitness Center - The Fitness Center includes state-of-the-art equipment for cardiovascular and weight training
  • Dance Studio - Ideal for dance, yoga and other fitness classes, the Dance Studio includes a changing room, mirrored wall and rubber floor
  • 110-space bicycle rack

The building also offers the exciting opportunity to deepen our partnership with one of Emmanuel's fellow COF members, MCPHS University, who will lease a number of beds for their first-year and returning students. This partnership also aligns both institutions with the City's goals for colleges to house undergraduate students on campus.

All apartments are fully furnished. Student are not permitted to bring their own mattresses. Residence Life will not remove any provided furniture from the room.
