The Student Union — Hub of Campus Life

The recently-completed expansion and extensive update of the Student Union makes it more than ever the hub of campus life!  The new Student Union is the “go-to” center for convenient access to food, essential services, corners for studying (or sleeping) and most importantly, a place to unwind and hangout with friends.

Campus Expansion — Creating More Green Spaces

The University recently purchased land at the south end of campus (behind Shiple Hall). Plans for the land include an intramural sports field and green space specially designed for students to escape and enjoy the outdoors.

And More — Improvements All Across Campus

  • New concrete and resurfaced lots across campus
  • New windows in North Quad
  • New skylights in Engineering High Bay in September

When the McNichols Campus Renovation Project is complete, nearly every building on McNichols Campus will be upgraded. All this investment is focused on making the ϲʲͼ Mercy student experience the best it can be.
