The facilities on Mercer’s campus are generally very well-maintained. Some buildings are a bit dated, but they balance out nicely with the newer areas of campus, such as the popular University Center (UC), a multipurpose building with a gym, food court, swimming pool, basketball courts, and an arena. The Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers two computer labs and tutoring. The three-story Jack Tarver Library generally has long hours and 24-hour study rooms, in addition to private study rooms. There are many areas on campus where studying either alone or in groups can take place, including the lounges inside residence halls and the lounge on the second floor of the Connell Student Center (CSC). Mercer does a fairly good job of updating and renovating its spaces to meet the needs of students and faculty.
Mercer has a very compact and pedestrian-friendly campus, and its grounds are pristine. Maintenance of the grounds is evident year-round. Not only is the campus pleasing to the eye, but portions of it are frequently used by students. The quad and Porter Patch are ideal for outdoor studying, events, or games of Frisbee or football.
