What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
One of the worst in the area. Don't worry, the students are so good, they are petitioning to change it currently.
Dave from Somerville, MA
From what I've heard, the food on campus isn't the greatest, but you're in the middle of Boston, and the food options off-campus are limitless.
Emily from Edinboro, PA
Boston offers a lot of opportunities to try new things and have fun between classes or on the weekends. Coffee shops, restaurants, parks, gardens, and shops are all within a ten minute walk from the main campus, so you're never short of things to do or see. There is a huge movie theater right across the street from the main campus as well, so you can choose to go catch a film minutes before it starts. Be sure to save your summer job pennies though! Boston offers a lot, but most things come at a price, whether it's shopping, tours, comedy clubs, or sporting events!
Emily from Campton, NH
Again, not a campus resident, so I don't eat the food. The Emerson's Cafe is pretty good and there are lots of places around to get food.
Cassidy from Wakefield, RI
On-campus dining is a bit wibbly-wobbly. The Dining Hall is a buffet and while most of the time there are good items in the 'home cooking' section, sometimes there will be nothing exciting in the rotation. You can make requests via the comment board though. There's also the Max in Piano Row which serves pretty good burgers n' fries, Emerson's Cafe (the Starbucks clone with some yummy sammiches), and Paramount Cafe (which I've been told is good). The Dunkin Donuts that has a door leading into the Little Building is not affiliated with Emerson, so don't try to use your BoardBucks there. Offcampus dining is good because it's Boston, but it can get pricey real quick. In the middle of the buildings we have an alleyway that leads to City Place, which is its own food court that has fairly cheap-ish prices on food.
