Here at Misericordia, the residential facilities serve two purposes in accommodating a student's university experience; to live and to learn. Living and sharing with others is a vital part of one's educational experience at Misericordia, providing the opportunities to build relationships and connections that will last a lifetime. Within the residential facilities, students are challenged to make decisions that not only affect their lives, but those around them as well.

The Office of Residence Life assists the residential students in their academic success and growth as a professional and a person. Residence Life staff members work in unison with the students to create and maintain an environment conducive to academic success and individual growth.
