VISIT OUR MAIN CAMPUS

Tour our campus and meet with us—virtually.
As our communities continue to confront the unprecedented health crisis surrounding COVID-19, we’ve canceled all in-person campus visits and events through at least May 15. This includes all individual visits and Accepted Student Day.

This is an exciting time for you, and although we can’t share in the excitement in person, you can still 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.

We look forward to you—in future days—touring our beautiful campus in person and meeting with us face to face.  In the meantime, we’re developing ways to virtually bridge the gap.

For information on Mercyhurst North East admissions events, please visit our Mercyhurst North East Visit webpage.

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

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.
