Historic Emerson Gaylord Mansion, built in the 19th century and located on the corner of Springfield and Fairview Streets, serves as the gateway to Elms College. It has had many uses in the years since it was a private home, from a residence hall for women to faculty offices.

Elms College has undertaken an ambitious project to not only return the stately building to its former glory, but to give it a new and vibrant purpose. The main floor has been transformed into a living-learning, community and cultural center, while the top two floors house postbaccalaureate and biomedical sciences students.

The newly refurbished Living-Learning, Community and Cultural Center (LLCCC) began housing students in February 2020. Learn more about graduate housing costs.
