Our history doesn’t follow a singular, linear path. Though our story does start with a singular idea and moment. It follows two schools and two winding paths that eventually meet and merge.

  • 1742: Established in Germantown, Pennsylvania, by Benigna von Zinzendorf; moves to Bethlehem seven weeks later.


Let's talk about stretching your mind. About challenging yourself. At Moravian College, you can have as much as you can handle. Choose from more than 55 majors and minors. Double or triple major. Or be a little revolutionary and create your own one-of-a-kind self-designed major.


Undergraduate conferences, the Honors Program, and SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) allow students to delve deeply into areas of personal interest. Such programs also give students the chance to work closely on research projects with senior faculty members—an unusual opportunity at the undergraduate level.


The Center for Career and Civic Engagement empowers students to develop the skills, experiences, confidence and connections necessary to pursue fulfilling careers while remaining civically-minded in their personal and professional endeavors.


Student services

The Center for Global Education centralizes a full range of resources for recruiting and facilitating the success of international students and scholars, education abroad, including advice and assistance in visa applications, immigration, tax filing, employment, and a variety of cultural matters.

CGE promotes the global perspective of our international students and engages the greater community through events, cultural programs, and workshops. Furthermore, CGE supports international students in becoming acquainted and adjusted to a new culture while preparing them for future leadership.

Housing services

More than 65% of undergraduate students live on-campus. The residence hall environment provides students with opportunities to learn from one another as well as about themselves. Living in a residence hall helps students realize the effect of their actions on those around them, develop sensitivity, and enhance skills in interpersonal relationships.

All full-time undergraduate students are guaranteed and are expected to live on-campus, or commute from their permanent address. The College reserves the right to offer off-campus housing to a select number of eligible students.

Library services

Reeves Library contains a collection of more than 256,000 volumes and subscribes to more than 1,200 periodical titles. It provides study space for more than 400 students, including study tables, individual carrels, group study areas, lounge seating, video- and DVD-viewing rooms, and research PCs.

Medical services

The Moravian College Health Center is managed by St Luke’s Hospital through the St. Luke’s Hospital Occupational Health Program and provides a variety of services during the fall and spring terms. A division of Student Affairs, the unit provides health and wellness Care to the college community through diagnosis and treatment, education, and response to the needs and interests of the students.

Student Life

Campus life

Moravian College has two beautiful and historic campuses located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, just a short drive from Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C. The campuses are easy to navigate and commute between.

The Main Street—or North—Campus is located in within eight blocks of a residential area. This campus is the center of daily life for most students, as it is home to the Reeves Library, Haupert Union Building (the HUB), and the athletics center.

The Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus is located eight blocks south of the Main Street Campus, in the Bethlehem Historic District. “South Campus” is home to Moravian’s music and art departments, as well as housing options for students.

Sports facilities

Moravian College unveiled its new state-of-the-art fitness center, to rave reviews. At 10,000 square feet, it offers plenty of room for students, faculty and staff to work out on gleaming new cardio equipment and weight machines. Built as an addition on the front of the Breidegam Field House, the center overlooks the HUB quad and, on the interior, windows offer a view down into the ARC.
