Haverford is one of America's leading liberal arts colleges, a close-knit intellectual community that combines the Quaker values of dignity, tolerance and respect with a rigorous academic program.
Our serene campus, located just outside Philadelphia, is a beautiful and stimulating environment:
- 200 acres of award-winning architecture and landscaping
- more than 50 academic, athletic and residential buildings
- a nationally recognized arboretum with 400 species of trees and shrubs, a 3.5-acre duck pond, gardens and wooded areas.
Recent campus additions include The Marian E. Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center and The Douglas B. Gardner '83 Integrated Athletic Center and two new student residences: Kim Hall and Tritton Hall.
The Honor Code
Guided by the College's Honor Code–one of the oldest in the country–Haverford students demonstrate an awareness for the greater good in how they work, study, socialize, debate and resolve conflict.
Our students are entrusted with freedom and responsibility from their first days on campus—an act of trust that aims to develop the whole person and create a lasting bond between the individual and the institution.
What Fords Take with Them
Students leave Haverford with an increased sense of independence, curiosity and confidence, as well as lasting bonds with friends and faculty. Whether they go on to advanced education, the workforce, travel, or public service, they leave grounded and well-equipped for rich, dynamic lives.
