Hire A Venue

Emerson College is an ideal place for day meetings, retreats, festivals and courses in self-development, arts, movement, spirituality and land based themes. Our gardens (22 acres) invite your participants to go on walks to experience the wonder of nature in plants and trees. We are a Biodynamic Botanical Garden and are building up a documentation of the many plants; our partner, The Heartwood Foundation, is creating a Medicinal Herb Garden and our own Vegetable Garden provides fresh vegetables to our kitchen. This creates a healthy, contemplative and safe environment which helps you to slow down and step out of your daily routine into a creative space.

Our facilities are simple, natural, with a lot of light; many sculptures by our students can be found in the grounds. We offer a campsite for up to 30 people, 50 single rooms and 7 twin rooms – all with shared toilets and showers.There is a wide range of rooms available to hire ranging in size from Ruskin Hall which can seat 150 people, to the Pixton meeting room for 8 people, depending on your requirements. Free WIFI is available in designated areas. We have ample free parking.
