Living on Campus

It’s a fact: undergraduate students who live on campus have better grades, are more likely to graduate in four years, and have a more rewarding overall college experience. That’s why all Mount Mercy undergraduates live in one of our campus residence halls, suites or apartments for at least their first four semesters.

Campus Communities

Since this may be your first time away from home, we want to surround you with people who share your same interests. Living Learning Communities allow our residents to live with others who share their interests, in a smaller and theme focused residential environment. Our communities promote engaged and reflective learning in and out of the classroom. Living Learning Community themes vary from year to year. Examples of past Living Learning Communities include Nursing, Business Leadership, and Women and Wellness Sophomore Experience.

Not only will you live on the same floor as your fellow community members, but you may take classes together, do service projects together, and have a group of friends to explore everything else campus life has to offer:
