Student Life

Life at Gwynedd Mercy University goes far beyond the classroom—there’s plenty of time for friends and fun, leadership and service.

Attend or organize campus events, join one of our 30+ clubs, participate in NCAA Division III sports, cheer on your fellow Griffins at sporting events, volunteer in the community, hop on the Griffin Loop to hit local shops and restaurants or explore nearby Philadelphia. There is always something to see and do at GMercyU.

Life at GMercyU

Our beautiful campus offers both close-knit community and big city access, with all the amenities you need to feel at home. 

You don’t have to live on campus to be a part of the action at GMercyU.

Extracurricular activities aren’t just for fun; they also hone teamwork, leadership, communication and organizational skills. 

From mass on campus to weekly local volunteer excursions and Alternative Spring Break trips around the country, we are committed to making a difference.
