Mercyhurst University is a residential campus, which means all undergraduate students are required to live on campus through their senior year*. 住在学生宿舍, 公寓, or townhouse-style residence on the Mercyhurst campus gives you a head-start on your path to success as a Laker.
当我们说“及时行乐”时,我们要抓住这一整天, including your time in our residence halls. Whether you’re composing an essay at your desk, 和你的助理医生一起享受电影之夜, hosting a late-night discussion with your roommates, 或者为一项体育赛事做准备, every experience on campus will be an opportunity for you to learn and grow.
On-campus residency assists you in your quest for success, as studies have shown that students who live on campus get better grades and are more likely to graduate in four years. 住在校园里, you will develop friendships and get to know people who live next door, 大厅那头, 在下面的地板上, and anywhere else your fellow classmates may live.
