Bryn Mawr College is a highly selective college for women located 11 miles outside Philadelphia in a suburban area known as the Main Line. Founded in 1885, Bryn Mawr sought to provide access to a high caliber education to women, and more than 130 years later, strong, smart women are still coming to Bryn Mawr to seek an unparalleled and empowering education.

Bryn Mawr’s close-knit community of 1400 undergraduate students come from diverse backgrounds, but all share an intense academic commitment, a purposeful vision, and a desire to make meaningful contributions to the world. Our shared values and traditions bond students and help them grow into scholars and leaders at Bryn Mawr and beyond.
