About Moravian College

That learning should be eye opening, heart racing, game changing and--most important--fun. When John Amos Comenius, a Moravian bishop, came up with that little theory all the way back in the 1600s, he probably didn't expect to have such a big impact. Turns out, we still agree with his philosophy. And we believe our students, like Comenius, can be a little revolutionary. They, too, can turn something seemingly small into something amazing, unimaginable, and bigger than themselves.

Welcome to your small chance--we know you're ready to turn it into a big change. Go for it. Be a little revolutionary.

Campus information

Moravian College has two beautiful, well-maintained campuses. The Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus on Church Street is in the center of Bethlehem's historic district; the Main Street campus is within eight blocks, located in a residential area. Campus transportation is provided to allow students to commute easily between campuses.

The Lehigh Valley is approximately 60 miles north of Philadelphia and 90 miles west of New York. Several major highways, three bus companies, and the Lehigh Valley International Airport, offer plenty of opportunities to access the Valley and Moravian College.




Moravian’s residence halls are located on the Main Street Campus in a residential section of the Bethlehem community and the historic Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus. In an effort to accommodate a range of living styles, housing options include traditional residence halls, gender neutral housing, suite-style units, fraternity and sorority houses, apartments and townhouses. Men presently reside in Rau/Hassler Hall, Bernhardt/Wilhelm Hall, the Anna Nitschmann and August Spangenburg Houses, three fraternity houses, and units in the upperclass apartment/townhouse areas. Women’s housing is provided in Rau/Hassler Hall, Bernhardt/Wilhelm Hall, Jo Smith Hall, the Anna Nitschmann and August Spangenburg Houses, four sorority houses and units in the upperclass housing areas. Housing in the upperclass apartment areas is reserved for upperclass residents. Fraternity and sorority house spaces are open only to members of the respective organizations. The College provides options for special interest housing by application on a year-to-year basis. Dining facilities for Main Street Campus residents are located in the HUB.

Residential facilities for all students also are available on the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus, with Main Hall as a residence for women, Clewell Hall for men and The HILL (Hurd Integrated Living & Learning) available for all genders. Dining facilities for the Hurd campus are in Clewell Dining Hall. The buildings of the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus reflect the charm and architectural genius of colonial Bethlehem and the early Moravian community and are equipped with contemporary facilities for the comfort and convenience of the residents.
