At Mercyhurst University, our main focus is our students and our guests. Each day we strive to create unique dining solutions for those we serve. We prepare fresh foods with a healthy balance and offer contemporary culinary choices in an exciting new environment to all that we serve on the Mercyhurst University campus. Our experienced team of managers and chefs are happy to assist any guests with any special needs or dietary requests.

We don't believe in the standard campus menu programs; our team will listen to your needs and then custom design a dining program for you.

First year residential students will have the opportunity to learn about all of the dining options when they come to campus for Orientation. Students will also choose from one of the three required meal plans offered to first year students
