RESIDENCE

HALLS

There are four residence halls on campus at GCU. Each of these buildings is an easy walk away from classes, dining, the wellness center, and other campus hangouts. You’ll be assigned to a residence hall based on what year of school you’re entering.

ST. JOSEPH HALL

St. Joseph Hall houses about 140 residents, from sophomore to seniors. This classic-style residence hall has double-occupancy rooms and communal bathroom facilities (bring a bathrobe!). St. Joseph Hall is on the north side of campus, near the basketball courts.

MARIA HALL

Maria Hall overlooks the Italian Gardens on one side and the Japanese Garden on another. It’s the location of our new First-Year Experience program. Maria Hall houses just over 200 students and includes laundry facilities and a kitchen in the lower level lounge area.

ST. CATHERINE HALL

Our newest residence hall, St. Catherine Hall, houses approximately 82 residents. Here, juniors and seniors live in both single and suite-style rooms. Two single rooms share a private bathroom, while suites consist of two double rooms with a private kitchenette, bathroom, and living room.

MERCY HALL

This building currently houses students in the Honors Program. Each double-occupancy room includes a bathroom, and the building has a microwave, sink, and laundry facilities. There is also a lounge on the first floor with a piano and television.

RESIDENCE

PROGRAMS

Programs are offered throughout the semester to help students build friendships and foster a deeper sense of community in our residence halls. There is one late-night weekend program held every week. Enjoy event planning? Talk to your RA about ideas you might have for a gathering.

CAMPUS MINISTRY

If you’re looking for a way to express your faith and connect with the community around you, consider joining the Campus Ministry. You’ll grow as a person while practicing our Mercy core values. In addition to prayer services and special events, the Campus Ministry offers retreats, service trips, and volunteer opportunities.
