Housing Opportunities

There is limited university-owned housing within easy walking distance of the law school.  For further information, please contact the Mercer University Office of Residence Life at 478-301-2687. For a listing of apartment complexes within the Macon area you may access www.apartmentguide.com.

As a service to new and continuing students, the law school maintains an online database of many privately owned housing options in Macon.  You may access this database by going to the Law School Portal.   Please note that the listings in this database do not purport to be comprehensive, nor do they reflect any screening on the part of the law school.  The listings are simply those that have been provided to the law school by the owners of the private housing options. 

The law school's including a housing opportunity on its on-line database should not be understood as any sort of recommendation or endorsement of that opportunity.  Any user of the database has the full responsibility of investigating for him - or herself the adequacy of any listing that he or she is considering. 

If you are an incoming first-year student and you would like to speak with a continuing student about housing options, please contact the Admissions Office and ask to be put in touch with one or more students who have volunteered to help new students in their housing search. 

Safety resources for off-campus living.

Local Property Owners: If you are interested in listing your apartment or house with Mercer please contact the Admissions Office at 478-301-2605. We will accept information for each fall class beginning March 1 and ending August 1. Please note that, as indicated above, the Law School in no way is recommending or endorsing to students any rental property that it lists.
