A Special Message to our Founder’s Day Guests

Due to a race that will be taking place in Downtown Bethlehem on Saturday, there will be numerous road closures in and around South Campus where Founder’s Day will take place. Because of this you will not be able to enter the South Campus parking lot off of Church Street. In order to accommodate this we have come up with two solutions which are listed below. Please take a moment to read them over and should you have any questions feel free to contact Amanda Maenza ’13, Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement, at or 610-861-1342.

Option 1: Shuttle Service - We will offer shuttle service from North Campus to South Campus so that you do not need to drive yourself! Meet in Parking Lot R located behind Colonial Hall and off of Elizabeth Avenue at 9:15pm to ride the shuttle bus down. This bus will then bring you back to your car after lunch at approximately 2 pm.

Option 2: Enter through the Lehigh Street Gate - If you would still like to drive yourself and park on South Campus you will need to enter through the Lehigh Street gate on the back side of South Campus. Travel south on New Street or west on Church Street, make a left onto N. New Street, a right as if you were to go over the bridge and then a quick right onto Lehigh Street. A police officer will be stationed at New and Lehigh Street - you will need to stop to let him know you are entering the Moravian parking lot and he will let you proceed. Make the first right into the parking lot and continue to the usual parking area near the main entrance.
