RESIDENCE HALLS

Mercyhurst University Residence Life strives to provide a living environment that enables each student to develop holistically through educational opportunities. We recognize that learning extends well beyond the classroom and continues into the area in which students live.

As freshmen at Mercyhurst, our students have three living options available: Baldwin Hall, an all female residence hall; McAuley Hall, an all male residence hall; and Warde Hall, which houses both males and females.

Baldwin Hall - All Female

Baldwin Hall is a female-only residence hall housing approximately 160 students and is staffed by a graduate-level Hall Director and six upperclassmen Resident Assistants. Centrally located within the freshman area, this hall offers double occupancy rooms, as well as a limited number of singles.

Additionally, the hall is in close proximity to the Mercyhurst Athletic Center (MAC), the Herrmann Student Union, Performing Arts Center (PAC), Grotto Commons dining hall, and academic buildings. 

Features:

  • Large lounge at entrance

McAuley Hall is a male-only residence hall housing 140 students and is staffed by a graduate–level Hall Director and six upperclassmen Resident Assistants.

Warde Hall - Coed

Warde Hall houses 360 male and female residents. Warde Hall is staffed by the Assistant Director, a graduate-level Hall Director and 12 upperclassmen Resident Assistants. A majority of the rooms in Warde Hall are triple occupancy (with a limited number of double-occupancy rooms available on a first-come, first-served basis), with residents sharing a room and a full bathroom.

Additional furniture has been added to most rooms in Warde Hall to accommodate three students. Students have their own bed, dresser, desk, and chair. These rooms in Warde also have two closets and a private bathroom shared by three students. Students are able to loft and/or bunk the beds from the room to optimize the living space according to their preferences. At approximately 300 square feet, rooms in Warde are the largest of all the freshman residence halls; the sizeable rooms and modular nature of the furniture allow for a variety of room configurations, and students in triple-occupancy rooms have sufficient space to live comfortably.
