At the heart of education, technology, culture, business, medicine, and science

Founded in 1919, Emmanuel College is a coeducational Catholic institution of liberal arts and sciences situated on 17 green acres in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. The college’s campus sits at the prime intersection of education, science, culture, business, medicine, and technology—giving students direct access to world-class research, learning, and experiential opportunities; in fact, 100% of students complete at least one career-igniting internship before graduation. The Emmanuel community takes advantage of a city simply pulsing with arts, athletics, dining, recreation, music, and more.

Emmanuel’s 2,000+ undergraduate and graduate students cultivate a strong intellectual and ethical foundation as they contribute to a close-knit community and engage in extraordinary opportunities for learning and growth. Across five academic schools and more than 70 majors, minors, and concentrations, faculty provide students with unwavering support and collaborate with them on original research and scholarship. At the heart of the Emmanuel College community is a commitment to social justice rooted in the founding vision of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who believe that “education is the greatest work on Earth.”


A Big Green Quad in the Heart of Boston

From the historic Eisner Administration Building to the innovative Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center, Emmanuel today is a place that continues to build on its 100+ year history on a big green lawn in the heart of Boston. For our students, 400 The Fenway is their new Boston address for the next four years; for our alumni, it's the home they return to for reunions and events to reconnect or to grab a cup of coffee. For the entire Emmanuel College community, Boston is home base: a place of innovation, history, service, friendship, and academic rigor amid the city's medical, business, and cultural worlds.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “This is our chance to make the future we want to live in. If we really want change, we need to have our boots on the ground. It’s a privilege to work and go to school in Boston, but wherever you live, you need to take care of it and leave it better than you found it.”

    • Luke Hines '24
  • "Having a place that supports you in all aspects of your life—culturally, academically, and professionally—ensures that we as students thrive and reach maximum potential."
