In-Person Individual Campus Visits

Individual visits for you and your family are the best way to get to know the spirit of Mercyhurst, offering a customized campus experience that fits your interests and goals. During your one-on-one visit, you and your family will have the option to tour campus with a Student Ambassador and meet with an admissions counselor. Campus visits are available throughout the day, Monday through Friday.

Please note that Mercyhurst University is not accepting visitors from any of the “hotspot” states listed on the Pennsylvania COVID-19 Information for Travelers webpage.

Virtual Visits and Events

Though restrictions on gatherings have limited our in-person campus visits, we are excited to offer a range of virtual visits and events open to all prospective students and families!

No matter where you are, our virtual visits and events allow you engage with the Mercyhurst community, get answers to your questions, and experience what it’s like to be a Laker. Please know we’re still here to answer any questions and support you however we can as you make your college decision; don’t hesitate to reach out at any time.

Virtual Visits

Our virtual campus visits give you the chance to experience the history, academic culture, hospitality, and spirit of community that animate life at Mercyhurst. During your virtual visit, you’ll take a video tour of our campus (known as one of the most beautiful in the region!) and meet with your admissions counselor and a faculty member—all while discovering why Hurst is Home. 

If you’re thinking of making a virtual visit to Mercyhurst (great idea, by the way!), check out our Mercyhurst Welcome guide. This PDF includes all the information prospective students and families need to get to know MU—including details on the application and financial aid processes, academic programs, student life, and more—and is a great resource to have on hand when you’re meeting virtually with an Ambassador and admissions counselor.

Virtual Campus Tour

Although current public health challenges prevent us from hosting you for an in-person campus visit, you can still explore Mercyhurst and discover the Laker Life without leaving home! Our Virtual Campus Tour provides prospective students and families the opportunity to experience campus from the safety and comfort of their home.

Our Campus

The only thing that does our campus justice is our campus. From Mercyhurst’s beginning in 1926, founder Mother Borgia Egan sought to establish our campus as the “beauty spot in the diocese of Erie.” The English Gothic elements of Old Main, designed by prominent Philadelphia architect F. Ferdinand Durang, are carried throughout our academic buildings, athletic facilities and student residences, effecting an ideal setting for university life. As you walk under the Gothic arches and across the open greens and brick courtyards, you’ll find places on campus for everything from quiet study to a pickup game of Frisbee with friends.
