Introducing 12 Hemenway St

We are excited to add 12 Hemenway into our residence hall inventory for the next two years while the Little Building is renovated. 12 Hemenway is located in a vibrant and exciting area with wonderful access to the main campus and other parts of our city.

Located only 1.3 miles down Boylston St from Emerson’s main campus, 12 Hemenway Street is a 110-bed residence hall in the Fenway neighborhood.

Students will call 12 Hemenway home in off hallway single double,triple and quad rooms. There are both off hallway common and private bathrooms along with common areas for students to study and socialize in. Xfinity IPTV cable TV access and wireless internet is available just as it is in main campus residence halls.

Residents of 12 Hemenway receive a free MBTA T Pass for the academic year, no-cost laundry, complimentary continental breakfast (M-F) as well as shuttle service to and from main campus from 11:00 pm – 3:00 am.

12 Hemenway is staffed by an Emerson RD (Matt Carney, who was the RD for Paramount for four years) and 5 RAs. There will be 24-hour security provided by ECPD and Securitas as well as regular housekeeping staff as the main campus residences.

It is important to note that only the first floor is accessible via a lift from the street level.  There is no elevator in 12 Hemenway.
