Campus Expansion

In December 2018, Gwynedd Mercy University nearly doubled the size of its campus by purchasing a 154-acre property adjacent to its Gwynedd Valley campus.

With the new property comes new possibilities. The University plans to transform the property into a state-of-the-art facility that will enhance existing programs and support the introduction of new, innovative programs. With 154 acres and 157,000 square feet of usable interior space to work with, there’s a lot to be excited about. 

“We are absolutely thrilled that we were able to take advantage of such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase this prime piece of property,” said President Deanne D’Emilio, JD. “Some of our current facilities are bursting at the seams, and this new space will provide exciting opportunities to expand and enhance the educational programs available to new and continuing GMercyU students.”

With the addition, GMercyU’s Gwynedd Valley campus has expanded to a total of 314 acres. On the property, there is an existing building that adds 157,000 square feet of usable interior space that can be renovated to fit the University’s needs. The property was purchased from Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., who was previously renting the property to Siemens.

The purchase of the property is a part of a broader plan to build on GMercyU’s reputation for preparing professionals who can successfully navigate a constantly changing world, and make that world a better place.

“The world needs more Distinctive Mercy Graduates who stand ready to make a lasting difference in the communities in which they live and work,” said D’Emilio. “We are excited about what the future holds for GMercyU, and for our current and future alumni.”
