College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live in on-campus housing and so I could not fairly evaluate it.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live away from campus, making for an inaccurate reveiw

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are basically sort of on the old side--the lot of them is, anyway. But it's quite an old campus, so hey--gotta compromise somewhere!

Campus Housing: Freshman housing is very old and needs to be redone. However, it has a lot of history. As you continue your years at mercer the housing improves. In recent years, mercer is making efforts to make new housing available to the growing campus size.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I've been a commuter my entire time at Mercer. So, I don't know much about the dorms or on-campus housing.

One of the greatest perks to living on campus is the convenience to classes—many of the residence halls and apartments are no more than a 10-minute walk from various departments on campus. The exceptions are the lower Winship/Adams apartment buildings, which are the most remote of the campus housing. While some of the dorms are new, clean, and pleasant to live in overall, others are a cause of student complaints, particularly Shorter and Plunkett halls. The spaciousness of the dorms varies by building, but generally, the upperclassman halls and apartments are bigger and roomier.

The freshman dorms—MEP, Plunkett Hall, and Roberts Hall—undoubtedly have the greatest sense of community, as many lowerclassmen have double occupancy rooms with roommates or suitemates. The Greek houses also have this sense of community, though they are reserved for upperclassmen and house a substantially smaller amount of people. Most students say that living on campus is truly convenient, and unlike larger schools, you will never have to drive to class if you live on school grounds. Furthermore, the maintenance department is almost always available during the weekdays to meet the needs of students who encounter problems in their dorms or apartments.
