Moravian University Police Department Website
119 West Greenwich Street
The Moravian University Police Department, also referred to as Campus Police, enforces the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as University regulations. Officers are commissioned police officers with law enforcement powers. The department also provides parking enforcement and coordinates University ID cards. Campus Police works closely with the police and fire departments of the City of Bethlehem as well as the Pennsylvania State Police. The Moravian University Police Department and Bethlehem Police Department have a Memorandum of Understanding agreement as to how offenses on campus and streets surrounding the University will be investigated.
Seventy-two emergency phones, connected directly to Campus Police headquarters, are located throughout campus and activated by pushing a button. Each elevator on campus is equipped with an emergency call button and audio communication connected to Campus Police. Dispatchers are in constant radio communication with Campus Police officers. Officers and dispatchers have the ability to communicate with the Bethlehem Help Desk and the Northampton County 911 Center. Campus Police is available 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day.
Students are required to have a student ID card which provides access to a student's meal plan, residence hall, academic spaces and labs after hours, and library books, etc. New students should stop by Campus Police at 119 West Greenwich Street after June 1 and before August 1 to have the photo taken and receive the ID card. Campus Police is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The visit will take less than 10 minutes. The student just needs to bring a photo ID. More information is available here.
The university emergency notification system, Moravian Alert, is deployed by Campus Police for situations involving an imminent, significant threat of personal injury or property damage, as well as to announce weather closings and delays. The system alerts students, faculty, and staff via siren/public address message, text message, email, and web postings. All members of the Moravian community are strongly encouraged to sign up for Moravian Alert on AMOS.
Campus Shuttle Service
Shuttle service is offered to the campus community seven days a week during the academic semester. Shuttle service may be limited during University holidays. View the shuttle schedule and a complete list of stops.
Center for Career & Civic Engagement
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.
Experiences build the skills sought by graduate schools, employers, and others. Through professional development programming and resources, students are equipped with the knowledge necessary to make a lasting impact on our rapidly changing global environment.
Some of the resources include:
- Assisting students in exploring career options
- Assisting students with short- and long-term opportunities for hands-on learning including service and internship experiences
- Providing résumé and cover letter preparation and developing interview skills
- Preparing students for graduate school or identifying job search strategies
Career Development Strategist & TypeFocus Assessment
Career Development Strategists are part of the ELEVATE experience, and provide personalized support as students navigate through the career exploration process. Completing the TypeFocus assessment will guide initial student conversations with their Career Development Strategist. Directions to access TypeFocus can be found here.
The 1742 Experience
The 1742 Experience is a one-week, pre-orientation program that introduces a select group of new students to the Bethlehem community through service projects. Under the supervision of the director of civic engagement, the program is coordinated and led by upperclassmen that serve as mentors and guides to participants. Through a variety of service opportunities such as working with children at the YMCA of Bethlehem, helping at a food pantry within a homeless shelter, or cleaning up the grounds of a local elementary school, students have the opportunity to explore and experience their new community before classes begin.
This is the perfect next step for students who have been previously involved in community service, but no experience is necessary! View the 1742 Experience application and additional information.
The Counseling Center supports the educational mission of Moravian University by providing professional and ethical counseling for the psychological, emotional, social, educational, and developmental needs of all students.
Counseling can be used to gain insight into everyday issues, encourage introspection, develop effective ways to deal with stress and anxiety, or improve overall quality of life. Counseling sessions are confidential and tailored to meet each student’s specific needs. Individual and couples counseling services are available to full-time students. Group therapy, outreach activities, and workshops are available to all students. Psychiatric services are also available to full-time students who are actively engaging in counseling sessions at the Center and have been referred by their counselor.
Disability & Accommodations
The Office of Disability and Accommodations (ODA) is committed to providing services to help students achieve academic success. The office supplements the classroom experience with individual and group assistance from professional staff and peer tutors, through the University Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) certified Greyhound Tutor program, who help students develop specific strategies for learning, time management, test preparation, test-taking, and other skills required for success in the college classroom. The Disability and Accommodation Services office also provides disability support and accommodations for students with documented disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Students who would like to submit an Accommodation request for disabilities including but not limited to cognitive/intellectual disabilities, medical conditions, psychological conditions, asthma/allergies/food allergies, concussion/ traumatic brain injuries should complete the steps listed here using their Moravian University email address. Once paperwork is submitted, ODA will meet with the student to discuss their request.
Greek Life has been a tradition at Moravian University for 100 years. Approximately 20 percent of Moravian students are members of one of the University’s five national sororities, three national fraternities, or one local fraternity. Members of the fraternity and sorority community are involved in all aspects of campus life and often hold campus leadership positions.
Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations dedicated to the development of character and leadership. Each organization subscribes to a specific set of core values and beliefs that incorporate concepts of brotherhood or sisterhood, service to Moravian University and community, scholarship, leadership, and building relationships congruent with the specific organization’s ideals and traditions. Two of our national fraternities and sororities are culturally-based organizations. These organizations have been founded on the basis of not just an acceptance of diversity, but a celebration of diversity amongst us all. Students are eligible to join a fraternity or sorority during their second semester at Moravian University or thereafter.
Under the management of St. Luke’s University Health Network, the Health Center provides a variety of medical services. If treatment required is beyond the scope of the Health Center, the student will be evaluated and referred to the appropriate provider for care.
The Health Center provides some non-prescription medication at no charge. Some prescription medications are available at a minimal charge as a convenience to the student. Health insurance is not required and there is no fee to be seen by the nursing staff or the physician.

New Student Orientation
Each new student, residents and commuters, is strongly encouraged to participate in as much of New Student Orientation, Friday afternoon through Sunday evening, as possible. New students are assigned an orientation group and an upperclass Orientation Leader or "OL" who guides the group through New Student Orientation. The programs focuses on acclimating our newest greyhounds to life on campus - where things are located, how students navigate college life, and important University traditions and history.
Students who wholeheartedly engage in orientation often make more friends and connections while gaining confidence and insights about how Moravian University functions. This is an incredible opportunity for new students.
Spirituality & Inclusion
The Office of Spirituality and Inclusion centers around building community, honoring diversity, and engaging in spiritual dialogue. The chaplains provide opportunities for worship, discussion, fellowship, education, and personal growth. This office is dedicated to engaging students, faculty, and staff of all faith and nonfaith backgrounds in creating meaningful relationships and making connections that will enhance your college journey.
Visit the Office of Spirituality and Inclusion, where you will find a relaxing, safe environment to study and hang out, meet new friends, and often share discussion over a home-cooked meal.
The Office of Student Development fosters a safe and inclusive campus community by educating students on their responsibility to uphold the community standards. Using a restorative and developmental framework, we empower students to be accountable for the impact of their actions and to effectively resolve conflict.
All students should read the Moravian University Student Handbook prior to arriving on campus. In addition to information about campus resources, the handbook explains a student’s rights and responsibilities as a member of the campus community in the Student Code of Conduct. In the Code of Conduct, you will find the community standards, the process that is used to respond to alleged violations of these standards, and examples of possible outcomes and consequences students may receive after being found responsible for violating the standards.
Online Prevention Programs
Completion of these online education programs is required of all new students. Information, including instructions, will be sent to your Moravian University email in early August. It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure substance misuse, hazing, and sexual violence do not hinder individual and communal goals and that everyone is welcome and included at Moravian University. The information you will engage with in this program will help you make our community a safe place for all and offer tools to care for yourself and others.
