Your support of this much-needed facility will have a lasting impact.


Moravian College has partnered with Bethlehem Area Moravians, Inc. (BAM) on a $25 million project that will transform the Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus by creating a living and learning community in historic downtown Bethlehem. The centerpiece of the project is a 100,000 square foot building that will house approximately 230 students, contain classrooms, and other learning spaces that support the academic and co-curricular mission of the College.

“We are most grateful for this partnership with the Bethlehem Area Moravians, Inc. that will enable us to create new attractive, safe, quality, affordable housing for our students,” said Christopher M. Thomforde, president of Moravian College. “This project will not only provide students with a wonderful place to live, it will build upon the rich, unique history and heritage of Moravian and allow us to more fully integrate the Hurd Campus into the academic and co-curricular life of the institution and the Bethlehem community.”
