At GMercyU, you can choose from more than 40 academic programs and enjoy a vibrant student life on our private 160-acre campus close to Philadelphia, one of the largest (and best!) cities on the east coast.

Here, traditional college-aged and adult students will find a caring and supportive environment, and a deep commitment to making a difference - for ourselves and for others.
