MERCYHURST UNIVERSITY STUDENT HOUSING
The new 102,342 sq. ft. four-story student housing complex was designed to accommodate 314 students. The architectural design of the building stays true to the regal design of the existing campus buildings showing Old World style with updated comfort. The rooms consist of apartment-like living and are spread across two wings of the building and connected by large common lounges to promote the sense of community desired by the university. Other amenities include group study rooms, meeting rooms, laundry facilities, fitness center, computer lab, music room, full kitchen, convenience store, multi-media room, guest apartment and exterior patio.
Mercyhurst University is committed to sustainable building design opportunities. The design team is pursuing LEED Certification for the student housing project. The Architectural Services included Feasibility Study, Programming, Architectural Design, Interior Design, and Construction Administration.
