Welcome, New Lakers!

Congratulations to all our new students — we’re so excited to welcome you as future Lakers! Haven’t confirmed yet? There’s still time to save your spot at Mercyhurst!

Virtual Visits and Events

Although current public health challenges prevent us from hosting you for an in-person campus visit, you can still explore Mercyhurst and discover the Laker Life without leaving home! Our Virtual Campus Tour provides prospective students and families the opportunity to experience campus from the safety and comfort of their home. Our virtual campus visits and events give you the chance to experience the history, academic culture, hospitality, and spirit of community that animate life at Mercyhurst.

With Gratitude to Health Care Professionals

In honor of the nurses, doctors, health care professionals, and first responders working to keep us safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mercyhurst carillon will ring across campus an extra time each day. A bell will sound at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., signifying the traditional change of hospital shifts, as a sign of our gratitude and a reminder of the part we all play in curbing the spread of the coronavirus.​​​​​​​

Choose Your Area of Study

With more than 100 academic disciplines, Mercyhurst affords you the opportunity for passionate study in almost any field.
