Mercy College has four campus locations, each of which offers their own unique experience.
As a Mercy College student, you can take part in classes and events at all of our campuses, regardless of which one you decide to attend. So, if you are attending Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry and have an internship in New York City, you can take classes at our Manhattan campus after work.
Dobbs Ferry is home to Mercy College's main campus. Students can enjoy a traditional college experience which includes the opportunity to live in Residence Halls, eat in our Dining Hall and use our athletic facilities. With views of the Hudson River, restaurant and shopping options on Main Street and a Metro North train station with service to New York City at the base of the campus, our Dobbs Ferry location provides students a safe and charming campus experience in close proximity to New York City.
Our Manhattan (New York City) campus is located in the heart of midtown on 35th street, just across from Herald Square and Macy's flagship store. There is always something to do and our students love having access to the world's most amazing city. Our Manhattan campus is also home to our MBA program's Strategic Consulting Institute and the Computer Arts + Design program's Roy Disney Center for Animation.
The Bronx campus houses the French Family Auditorium and the Marsha and James McCormick Library. Many of our Health and Natural Sciences students pursue internships in nearby hospitals and medical offices. Mercy College offers a free shuttle bus from the Westchester Square - East Tremont Avenue station of the 6 Train to the Bronx campus.
Our Yorktown Heights campus is home to 25 classrooms, two computer labs and a library. The Yorktown Heights campus primarily serves the community of Northern Westchester County. International students living in the area are welcome to enroll in classes here.

Participation is a great way to meet new people, have fun and make the most of your college experience. All clubs and organizations are open to everyone and starting new clubs is just as easy as joining an existing one. For more information, please refer to our Clubs and Organization page.
