Mercyhurst University

Sophomore Housing

Building on the communities that were established freshman year, Mercyhurst offers sophomore year students the opportunity to live in the Sophomore Area. This area is set aside for only sophomore students and is supervised by the Assistant Director of Residence Life. Two graduate student Hall Directors work with Resident Assistants (RAs) who are committed to assisting with the transition from freshman to sophomore year. Additionally, programs and activities geared towards sophomore needs are offered each term.

The Sophomore Area is comprised of ten apartment buildings – eight Briggs apartment buildings as well as East and West Duval. The majority of the Briggs apartments are quads with a limited number of triples. All of the Duval apartments are quads.
