About Misericordia University

Misericordia University is a Catholic university in northeast Pennsylvania, founded by the Sisters of Mercy, that provides caring, motivated students with a challenging education.

We believe in providing personal attention, support, and opportunities that enable our students to experience success. Service to others is woven throughout all that we do and is a passion for everyone associated with our university.

Misericordia University provides a quality education through the tenets of mercy, service, justice and hospitality—charisms set forth by the school's founders. The university has been guided by these principles for more than 90 years.

Dallas is Texas' most mythical city, with a past and present rich in the stuff that American legends are made of. The 'Big D' is famous for its contributions to popular culture – notably the Cowboys and their cheerleaders, and Dallas, the TV series that for a time was a worldwide symbol of the USA. An upscale ethos makes for an amazing dining scene (you can tell which place is hot by the caliber of cars the valet leaves out front) and the nightlife's not too shabby either.
The museums are not only excellent, but unique – history buffs should not miss the memorials to President John F Kennedy's assassination. The most impressive addition to Dallas' cultural landscape in recent years is the massive 68-acre Arts District, now the largest in the country.

Don't worry, though: all this culture doesn't mean that Dallas isn't still a paragon of conspicuous consumption. With more malls per capita than anywhere else in the US, shopping is definitely this city's guiltiest pleasure. So if you feel the urge to take out your credit card, throw frugality to the winds and say 'When in Dallas…', you won't be alone.


Misericordia University offers a variety of housing options for students who wish to share in the invaluable experience of living in community. Our communities are built on respect, common courtesy and responsibility.

The University manages eight residential facilities: McHale Hall, Alumnae Hall, Gildea Hall, McGowan Hall, Townhouse Complex, two houses on Lake Street and the new Machell Avenue Residence.

Since all of our residential facilities are either on or very close to campus, they provide unparalleled access to University activities and resources.

One of the most significant ways to involve yourself in your new community is through the Residence Hall Association. This is a consortium of residents in your hall / house who help organize and coordinate building activities. Meal plans are required of all students living on campus. First year students are always assigned to the traditional halls prior to their arrival. All upper class students are able to select their rooms and roommates through a Lottery Selection Process that is held in April.
