VISIT OUR CAMPUS
Virtual Visits and Events
Though restrictions on gatherings have limited our in-person campus visits, we are excited to offer a range of virtual visits and events open to all prospective students and families! No matter where you are, our virtual events and visits allow you engage with the Mercyhurst community, get answers to your questions, and experience what it’s like to be a Laker.
Our virtual campus visits give you the chance to experience the history, academic culture, hospitality, and spirit of community that animate life at Mercyhurst. During your virtual visit, you’ll take a video tour of our campus (known as one of the most beautiful in the region!) and meet with your admissions counselor — all while discovering why Hurst is Home.
If you’re thinking of making a virtual visit to Mercyhurst, check out our Mercyhurst Welcome guide. This PDF includes all the information prospective students and families need to get to know MU — including details on the application and financial aid processes, academic programs, student life, and more — and is a great resource to have on hand when you’re meeting virtually with an admissions counselor.
Financial Aid Nights
The financial aid process can seem complex and overwhelming for prospective students and families. Mercyhurst’s Virtual Financial Aid Sessions break down the process for you and your family while showing you how affordable a Mercyhurst education can be. During these virtual events, you'll hear from representatives from the Mercyhurst Admissions team and Student Financial Services office, as we discuss scholarship and grant opportunities and explain how the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) works.
Wednesday, December 16, 7 p.m.

Live Campus Tour
Our Live Campus Tour events allow you to embark on a full campus tour right from home! Led by student Ambassadors and admissions representatives, we’ll explore academic spaces, residence halls, dining facilities, student life centers, and more in real time while giving you an inside look at campus.

Virtual Campus Tour
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.
The only thing that does our campus justice is our campus. From Mercyhurst’s beginning in 1926, founder Mother Borgia Egan sought to establish our campus as the “beauty spot in the diocese of Erie.” The English Gothic elements of Old Main, designed by prominent Philadelphia architect F. Ferdinand Durang, are carried throughout our academic buildings, athletic facilities and student residences, effecting an ideal setting for university life. As you walk under the Gothic arches and across the open greens and brick courtyards, you’ll find places on campus for everything from quiet study to a pickup game of Frisbee with friends.
