The residential component of EMTM creates the environment for developing richer and deeper ties among students that strengthens the networking benefits of the program. Before and after classes, students meet to work on team projects or talk informally, both in campus facilities and at the nearby hotel where EMTM students stay during program weekends.

Hotel Accommodations

All EMTM student are housed in private guest rooms at Philadelphia's University City Sheraton Hotel (36th & Chestnut Streets). EMTM program fees cover the cost of the room and tax, as well as a breakfast voucher at the hotel's restaurant.

Full-time students are entitled to stay at the hotel on Thursday and Friday evening of each EMTM weekend. Half-time students stay at the hotel on Friday evenings.
