Emerson College has received a MassDevelopment bond of nearly $133 million for a new residence hall and other improvements.

The new hall will be 89,900 square feet with 400 beds, located at 1-3 Boylston Place.

Bond proceeds will also be used for renovations to the Little Building residence hall and to buy and install an IT system for the journalism studio at 120 Boylston St.

“Emerson College serves as an emerging catalyst of cultural and economic activities locally, regionally and nationally,” MassDevelopment President and CEO Marty Jones said in a statement. “As the college continues to grow in size and significance, MassDevelopment is pleased to support its efforts to increase on-campus housing capacity thereby helping to relieve a bit of the burden students place on Boston’s limited housing stock.”

The projects will support more than 350 construction jobs.
