Mercyhurst University is engaged in numerous efforts to prevent, mitigate, and respond to the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses. Through these efforts Mercyhurst is limiting the number of visitors to campus this fall.

Visitor Policy

All guests must request permission to access campus by completing our Guest Screening Form.

Additional information about special policies and procedures around visiting campus will be posted in this space. 

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 visits and events allow you engage with the Mercyhurst community, get answers to your questions, and experience what it’s like to be a Laker.

Virtual Visits

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 and a faculty member—all while discovering why Hurst is Home. 

Performing and Visual Arts

For students engaged in the performing arts (including music, dance, and theatre) and the visual arts, rehearsals, performances, and public displays are important parts of honing skill in these disciplines. University administrators are working with faculty from the art, music, dance, and theatre programs to develop plans for rehearsals and shows in the fall with limited audience attendance and perhaps the use of virtual technologies so patrons can access these outstanding performances.

The Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture will be forgoing all in-person performances for the fall, with MIAC Live in-person performances scheduled beginning in February 2021. 

Homecoming 2020

The traditional events of Homecoming Weekend have been canceled for fall 2020, however, the Office of Alumni Relations is planning an exciting Homecoming from Home. We are planning special swag, virtual events to include tours and trivia, affinity gatherings with faculty, and much more. Stay tuned to the Alumni Relations webpage to learn more about the exciting events, or feel free to reach out via alumni@mercyhurst.edu to learn more.
