Mercy College of Health Sciences welcomes you to visit our campus! Nestled on the edge of downtown Des Moines, Iowa, take in the city skyline everytime you walk to class. Des Moines was named #4 best place to live by U.S. News & World Report's 125 Top Places to Live in the USA in 2018. Campus is just a short walk away from the Historic Court Avenue District where you can grab food, coffee, and study or shop between classes. Did we mentioned one of our clinical affiliates, MercyOne Downtown, is just a short walk away from campus?


We offer two easy ways to experience campus. The first is a Campus Visit Day. This is where you come and physically visit campus and get submerged into Mercy College with the sights, sounds, and more. The second way to experience campus is an Online Info Session. This is an online meeting where a small group can video chat with one of our awesome Admissions Counselors who will answer any questions you want from program specifics to financial aid. So, are you ready to see us yet?


Campus Visit Days

Campus Visit Days provide opportunities for you to get up-close and personal with our high-tech classrooms and healthcare technology. Check out Brennan Hall, the Sullivan Center, and the Academic Center for Excellence—  just a few of our campus treasures. Come experience campus life firsthand and discover the #MercyCollegeEdge. 

Campus Visit Days consist of a 30 minute presentation providing an overview of Mercy College of Health Sciences and all academic programs. You'll also go on a complete campus tour and then have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with our admissions staff. Whether you are a high school student, transfer student, or a working adult looking to return to school, come experience campus and register here.

If you are unable to attend any of our Campus Visit Days, contact and we will set up a one-on-one visit during a time convenient for you.
