Haverford College

Directions to Haverford College

Getting Here

Haverford is easily accessible by car, train, and taxi, and is located about 30-45 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport. GPS Users: There appears to be a coding error in many GPS navigational systems such that entering our street address (370 Lancaster Avenue, 19041) gets you directed to the Haverford School, next door. So instead, please try entering "Coursey Road 19041" - this should direct you right to the Whitehead Campus Center.

Parking is available for those who come by car in the Orchard Lot (across from the Whitehead Campus Center) and the South Lot. Parking for prospective students and parents who are visiting the Admission Office is specially reserved on Coursey Road adjacent to the Whitehead Campus Center. This area is reserved on weekdays from 8 am until 5 pm, and on Saturdays from 8 am until Noon.
