Residential Facilities

Misericordia University manages seven residential facilities: McHale Hall, Alumnae Hall, Gildea Hall, McGowan Hall, Townhouse Complex and two houses on Lake Street.

  • McHale Hall - a traditional standard double room residence that houses first year men and women. It is co-ed by floor/wing and is equipped with air conditioning and elevator access. Lounges are located on each floor for study/recreational purposes and a main lounge (Fireside) contains a full kitchen/living room area.
  • Alumnae Hall - a newly renovated traditional co-ed standard double room residence that houses first year and upper class students. Now connected to the new McGowan Hall facility, residents are able to access all of the modern lounges, fully equipped kitchen and study areas.
  • Gildea Hall - apartment-like suites for upper class students, co-ed by unit and holding three, six or seven occupants. All suites contain a full bath and common room area and each floor has a lounge and a kitchenette. This facility is air conditioned and has elevator access.
  • McGowan Hall - a new and modern double room facility for upper class students with a private full bathroom shared with the bedroom next door. The second and fourth floor lounges are equipped with a full size kitchen and study areas. The third floor lounge contains all the same amenities minus the kitchen.
  • Townhouse Complex - consists of 18 individual townhouse units for upper class students. Each is equipped with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a common living room and full kitchen. This residence is co-ed by unit and houses six students.
  • Lake Street Houses are off campus houses for upper class students that offer the full amenities of a typical household with a kitchen and laundry facility.

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.
