Important admissions updates regarding the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The Swarthmore campus grounds are now open to visitors. Though the grounds will be open, access to indoor facilities and buildings will remain restricted to authorized students, faculty, and staff members only. You can read more about our modified visitor policy on our COVID-19 information website.
While Swarthmore's campus will be open for visitors, please note that the Admissions Office remains closed, and our staff continues to work remotely. Prospective students and families are welcome to visit, but there is no formal in-person programming at this time. We encourage you to continue to explore our virtual visit offerings for more ways to connect with us through information sessions and tours.
If you do plan to visit our campus after June 7, you can pick up a copy of the campus map at the Campus & Community Store, located at 4 South Chester Road in Swarthmore.
We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and how it’s affecting schools and activities across the country. The Admissions Office will work with students and families, teachers, and counselors to understand and take into consideration all extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We're always available to answer questions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Swarthmore College is where intellectually passionate students think and create together for the betterment of their communities and the world.
We collaborate, rather than compete. We dive deep and then put our ideas to work.
We believe in the power of place, knowing that students will thrive in our gorgeous arboretum campus but also appreciate the easy access to downtown Philadelphia, with a train station right at the edge of campus.
We embrace the knowledge that living in a community of people with diverse backgrounds challenges our assumptions and helps us become who we want to be.
Until now, your education might have been a wonderful appetizer. Welcome to Swarthmore: an endless intellectual buffet, where curiosity and collaboration help create leaders for the common good.
