Holiday closures: Please note that the Admissions Office will close at noon on Thursday, December 15th. The Admissions Office will be closed from Friday, December 23rd through Monday, January 2nd. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 3rd. 

Swarthmore's campus, one of the most beautiful in the world, is almost heart-stoppingly gorgeous, with its mix of expertly curated gardens, expansive lawns, intriguing woods, and inviting playing fields. Some students think its clusters of quaint stone buildings makes it feel like a real-life Hogwarts. 

Swarthmore's appeal goes beyond our sublime exterior. Participate in one of our classes, and you'll find some of the most engaged professors teaching today—and some of the most fascinating and curious students. 

The best way to experience Swarthmore is to visit. We encourage you to schedule a tour, attend a class, or spend the night. See you on campus!
