Are freshman allowed to have a car on campus?
Emerson College
Hi Taell-Elyse, Unfortunately for both commuters and residents, we do not encourage students to have a car on campus. Emerson College being located centrally in Downtown Boston. Traffic can be highly congested, and there are very limited metered parking options. Additionally, Boston is a very walkable city, and we have the MBTA as our subway system for longer distances. Please feel free to read more about our Motor Vehicle Policies here: https://emerson.edu/policies/motor-vehicles

What is the average class size for lower division courses at Emerson?
Emerson College
Hi Elizabeth, The overall average class size is about 25 students per class. However, most students will actually be in classes between 14-18 students, when it comes to major-specific courses. Our student to faculty ratio is also 13:1, and due to the small size of the college, students are able to receive individualized learning approaches from their professors, while forming strong relationships with peers, teachers, and staff members.
