'...Rediscovering the inspiration, the joy of thought; I didn't know I could create in this tender way, but now I do...'

Are you an artist, an academic, a researcher or a creative person who is looking for a time and space away from your usual environment and obligations? Would you like to stay at Emerson College to explore your discipline within our community, meet new people and experience life in a new location?

We offer a single room with shared kitchen & bathrooms and lunches from Monday to Friday. You are welcome to work in your room, the library or any of the other shared spaces in the College. You will be able to rent other facilities (at cost) as and when they are available.

Share a lunch with students, volunteers and staff. Our vegetarian lunches are freshly cooked with our own home grown vegetables and organic / biodynamic ingredients from local producers. 

We have a varied programme from a weekly choir to storytelling courses and lectures.  Click here to find out more.

We would welcome a presentation of your work to the community at the end of your stay if you wish.
