Jean Yawkey Center

The Jean Yawkey Center is the "living room" of Emmanuel's campus. It's your student center, your dining hall, your gym and fitness center, your place to meet up with friends... All rolled into one.

It's hard to imagine a day passing when you're not swinging open the red doors, plopping down in one of the atrium lounge chairs and looking out the giant glass windows overlooking the Quad. In addition to being the place to come to relax and unwind, you'll come here to find the latest Saints gear at the Bookstore and visit the Marian Hall Dining Room, Emmanuel's main dining facility, offering buffet-style dining with a wide assortment of foods, including stir fry, a pasta bar and dessert stations.
