Bryn Mawr and Haverford have closely tied histories that have grown together over the last 130 years.
Bryn Mawr’s partnership with Haverford is by far the closest, not just in terms of distance -- just a mile separates the two campuses -- but also in terms of practice. Bryn Mawr students can take classes, major, minor, eat, live, and participate in campus life at Haverford. Haverford students have the same opportunities at Bryn Mawr.
This partnership greatly expands the academic options available to students with some programs available only on one campus (e.g. Music and Fine Arts at Haverford, Theater and Dance at Bryn Mawr). Even programs that exist on both campuses may have different emphases or approaches giving students more of an opportunity to specialize in certain fields.

Using the Consortium
