At Mount Mercy, living on campus means setting up a home away from home and blending your academic life with your social experiences.
By immersing yourself in the campus experience you'll make the most of your time at college. Our staff is here to help create a welcoming and engaging environment which will help you negotiate the excitement and challenges that come with living on campus.
The residence halls are staffed by students and professionals who are here to help you make the most of your residential experience. Resident Assistants (RAs) are current students who have lived on campus for at least one year and have been selected and trained to help acclimate you to your new community, and promote strong and healthy environments for you and the students you live with.
Our professional staff is a team of dedicated, highly-trained individuals who manage the day-to-day operations of the residence halls. They are responsible for effectively managing housing operations and providing safe and comfortable facilities to meet student needs. These leaders are constantly looking for ways to engage students in learning opportunities outside the classroom while encouraging students to accept the freedom and responsibility inherent to community living. The Residence Life Staff seeks to challenge students to explore new ideas, new ways of thinking, and to explore the various types of community interaction.
