Life in Merion Garden

Merion Gardens is a Junior and Senior exclusive campus location with parking and shuttle service available for use. Apartments have spacious living and dining rooms that allow groups to cook meals and enjoy each other’s company while enjoying the benefits and security of SJU housing. Students also have the shuttle service and train station right next to their building for quick access to central campus or downtown.

A Hawk Perspective

I think that it's an awesome building to live in because it gives residents their own space while also being fairly close to campus. The apartments are pretty big and there are many different rooming options. Hope this helps! - Kaeleigh
