About this site

This site will be continuously updated during emergencies (such as weather events) that impact campus operations. Should a true emergency take place, the College will employ its Emergency Notification system. Update your emergency contact information in BIONIC or contact Human Resources for the appropriate form.

If no updates are listed for an office, please check the General Updates section and otherwise assume the office is open for business as usual.

Bi-co Transportation Services

Bi-co transportation services began running on Monday September 14th.

Please note that due to physical distancing guidelines, there is limited seating available on all vehicles. This may mean that buses can not accommodate all passenger expectations. Please plan accordingly. Parking restrictions have been relaxed on both campuses so you may consider driving or walking to class. Please contact Campus Safety for parking information.


In response to the COVID-19 outbreak the OneCard office is currently closed for walk-in customers; we are offering all services online.

Need a replacement card or any OneCard Service? Email us at onecard@brynmawr.edu

If you have lost your OneCard please go to the Campus Safety Office and they will arrange for temporary building access.


Controller's Office

All payroll deadlines for time sheet submissions remain unchanged (see schedules for biweekly staff and students).  For now, we ask that all time sheets be submitted electronically.  Supervisors can email time sheets to payroll@brynmawr.edu (acceptable formats scan, PDF, Excel, clear/legible photograph). The email from the supervisor will serve as the formal approval. COVID-19 sick time should be recorded as Sick or Sick Other on time sheets (please check in with Human Resources for additional information on this topic). Please send any time sheet related questions to payroll@brynmawr.edu.

To facilitate your work, the Controller’s Office will continue processing vendor payments through eMarket, reimbursements, and fellowships on the usual schedule. Any requests that you would normally send through campus mail, are better emailed to accountspayable@brynmawr.edu. If you do not have access to a scanner, we can accept clear and legible photographs. Requests should be emailed by budget approvers or those approvers should be copied. If a request is to reimburse an employee, the employee should be copied as well. Please send any payment-related questions to accountspayable@brynmawr.edu.

We will update this page if circumstances change. Thank you.

The bookshop is available by email at bookshop@brynmawr.edu throughout the day, and the bookshop website is open 24/7 at bookshop.brynmawr.edu.
