Eisner Administration Building

Situated in the heart of our campus, the Eisner Administration Building is the architectural symbol of Emmanuel, representative of its rich traditions and history.

  • Built in 1914, two years after Fenway Park
  • Home to the historic Chapel, classrooms and studios, faculty and staff offices, the Muddy River Cafe and more
  • Named for longtime Emmanuel College President Sr. Janet Eisner, SNDdeN in 2019

The Eisner Administration Building has served as the architectural symbol of Emmanuel College for more than 100 years. Designed by famed architectural firm Maginnis & Walsh more than a century ago, it was the only building on campus for the first 30 years of the College's existence—meaning for generations of graduates, the Eisner Administration Building WAS Emmanuel College.

Today, the Eisner Administration Building remains as prominent as ever. Recent renovations have ensured it will continue to serve as a bridge from the groundbreaking Emmanuel of the past to the vibrant and dynamic learning environment of the present. From the historic Chapel to the high-tech classrooms such as the Joanne DiGeronimo Migliaro '88 and Anthony Migliaro Classroom, which features dual 80-inch, high-definition LED displays aimed toward engaging students in new and innovative ways, the Eisner Administration Building is an ever-evolving link between Emmanuel's past and future.

The Eisner Administration Building is also home to classrooms, the Art Department, student services such as Academic Advising, Campus Ministry, and the Center for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, faculty offices and meeting space, the mailroom, Campus Safety (open 24/7) and the Muddy River Café.
