Lofts at Mercer

Although living at Lofts at Mercer meets the on-campus residency requirement for sophmore and juniors, they are privately owned and managed. Rent is paid directly to the Lofts and will not be placed on Mercer student accounts. Assignments to the Lofts are made through Mercer's central room selection process; however, residents must sign a lease directly with the Lofts.
