Campus information

We are located in Pennsylvania's fourth largest city and one of the busiest ports on the Great Lakes. Gannon’s urban campus, in the middle of downtown Erie, is within a two hour drive of Cleveland, Buffalo, and Pittsburgh.


The University housing regulations mandate that all students studying in their first through fourth semesters whose parents/guardians primary residence is outside the 25-mile radius of the University must reside in University housing. Freshmen are assigned to live in either a traditional two-person room style in Finegan Hall or Wehrle Hall, or various sized suite style of North Hall. When a student reaches their third semester of study they can move into a wide variety of University owned apartment buildings. The University also owns and operates three sorority houses as well as one fraternity house.

Students who live in the apartments or one of the small houses will have a housing commitment of nine months. Summer Housing is available in select apartment buildings.

Students going through the housing process are required to pay a $100 housing fee with their request in the selection process. A receipt for the deposit must be submitted with the request. The deposit is non-refundable. Students are responsible for a $500 termination fee if they do not reside in the unit that they signed for in the housing commitment form, beyond the fourth semester in residence. If the student attempts to live off campus during one of the first four semesters they will be charged the going room rate for the semester.

All freshmen and sophomores whose parents’ primary residence is outside the 25-mile radius are required to live in University housing.

The University’s housing facilities have a number of different housing opportunities. Each apartment will include at least one of the following: kitchen, dinette area, bathroom and/or a vanity area, bedroom and living room. Most of the apartments are designed for four people however there is also a wide selection of 3-person, 2-person, and 1-person apartments. The University also operates fully functional houses for the Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Sigma Tau, and Phi Sigma Sigma sororities and the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity.
