The Hurd Campus is located in the heart of the Bethlehem Historic district and is central in the history of the Moravian community. The architecture and stories of this area date back to the original Moravian settlement established in the 1740’s! Now, historic Bethlehem is home to numerous shops, restaurants and historical landmarks. The Hurd Campus is home to the Music and Art Academic Departments, Foy and Peter performance halls, the Payne Art Gallery and the Frueauaff house, where the College’s President lives. Students living on the Hurd campus enjoy a central location and an ample amount of green space behind the residence halls for outdoor activities.
Students living on the Hurd Campus can eat in Clewell dining Hall where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served Monday-Friday. The College provides regularly scheduled bus service between the Hurd and Main Campuses Monday through Thursday from 7:00am until just after 12:00am, Friday from 7:00am until 2:00am, Saturday from 9:00am until 2am, and Sunday from 9:00am until just after 12:00am. As part of the Campus Safety network, the Hurd Campus emergency and fire safety systems report directly to MC Campus Police.
Opening in the mid-19th Century as a private residence, Clewell Hall is now home to 21 men in various double- and single-room configurations. Clewell Hall has the same amenities as all residential facilities, including laundry, computer networking, campus telephone service, basic cable TV and emergency service equipment. In addition, Clewell Hall has a full kitchen for residents’ use. Clewell is a very short walk up Church St. from Main Hall, Clewell Dining Hall and the rest of the Hurd Campus. Clewell Hall is staffed by one Resident Assistant and is part of the Hurd Campus residential complex along with Main Hall. Clewell residents generally engage in activities and programs with the students in Main Hall, and also sponsor their own events, including occasional Sunday afternoon outdoor barbeques and their annual Clewell Haunted House, a campus favorite.
Each student has direct access to the college computer network for data storage and internet connection (there are two data ports in the room). Specific information regarding the campus network, computing resources and recommended system requirements can be found on the MC CIT Website.
