Student Life

Residence Halls

Misericordia University offers several dormitories, townhomes, and off-campus housing. Townhomes and off-campus housing are typically reserved for upper classmen.

Parking and Transportation

First year students, unless they are commuters, are not permitted to bring their vehicle to campus. Public transportation is available with a college shuttle that has regularly scheduled visits to shopping centers and attractions throughout the surrounding community.

Health Services

Find information about our Health and Wellness Center, including hours of operation, services provided, eligibility for services, and information about required health documents for incoming students.

Campus Dining Services

In addition to the John and Mary Metz Dining Hall, there are three additional locations throughout campus for students to grab a quick bite or a beverage. All locations offer a variety of dietary options—from low fat to vegetarian, gluten free and vegan. If your student has specific dietary needs or food sensitivities, the dining services staff will work with them on an individual basis to ensure their needs are met.

Campus Safety

Student safety is our top priority. Our Safety Office is committed to ensuring a safe learning environment for students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University by providing high quality service with excellent standards of personal integrity and ethics. The University’s Safety Office is staffed 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Student Success Center

Disability Services

The Office for Students with Disabilities provides services for students seeking academic adjustments and auxiliary aids under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Office also hosts the fee-based Alternative Learner’s Project (ALP), which provides services that extend beyond the accommodations referred to under Section 504.

A member of the counseling staff is on-call and available 24 hours a day for emergency services. Appointments can also be made through the CAPS Center for individual counseling.

Insalaco Career Center
