Parking is available in the General Lot on Radnor Street Road (adjacent to the football field) or in the South Lot on Radnor Road. Regardless as to which direction you turn off of Eagle Road onto Radnor Road/Radnor Street Road, you will reach one of these lots. Parking is not permitted on Fariston Road at any time.
Parking is available in the General Parking Lot and Kuncl Parking Lot. Please help us maintain good relations with our neighbors by parking only in these designated parking areas. We specifically ask that you not park on Fariston Road (the street directly across from the main gate). There is no parking on this street, and the local police will ticket any automobile parked there. Special parking information and assistance for handicapped or elderly visitors can be arranged by contacting the Office of Parent Relations at (610) 989-1328.
When you return your cadet to campus, please use the General Parking Lot or Kuncl Parking Lot as your drop-off point. Pedestrian access to campus along Radnor Street Road is limited to the Chapel Gate. We urge you not to stop on Radnor Street Road for this purpose. We have locked the remaining gates along Radnor Street Road for the safety of our cadets and guests. The road is heavily traveled, and unfortunately, drivers do not heed the posted speed limits. Our past experience indicates that traffic backs up quickly, creating a potentially dangerous situation when cadets attempt to cross the road, particularly after dark.
Occasionally we will negotiate with the hotels listed below to offer special rates for guests participating in special events. These specials will be announced in the Parents Newsletter for Parents Weekend, and through the Office of Alumni Relations for Alumni Reunion Weekend. Where applicable, be sure to announce your affiliation when making reservations.
