As part of the Lehigh family, you’ll be immersed in a welcoming and vibrant community where learning and living go hand in hand. We want your time on campus to be rewarding and enjoyable, both inside and outside the classroom.
Lehigh students will find a welcome home on the Asa Packer Campus in Bethlehem, where they will be immersed in a vibrant living and learning environment. They will have all the comforts of home while living in residence halls that are conveniently located to classrooms, dining options, health and safety services and social opportunities.
Lehigh students are offered a host of options for dining on campus, including vegetarian, international, kosher and gluten-free menu items. Our staff takes great care to consistently deliver expertly prepared cuisine and excellent service, and is always evolving to meet the needs, tastes and preferences of our students.
Lehigh residence halls are equipped with the comforts of home. Each room is outfitted with furniture and telephone and wireless network connection. The residence halls each have group common areas with recreational amenities including pool tables and lounge areas. All residence halls are located just a short walk from dining halls, classrooms, the fitness center and libraries. Learn more about Amenities >
Gryphons, often referred to as Resident Advisors at other institutions, will be an integral part of your first year. They will act as mentors, answer questions and provide information to you. They also develop and plan fun on- and off-campus activities and trips. The term Gryphon comes from the mythological beast of Scythia that was known for protecting the area's gold. We use this term because Lehigh considers its students our "gold" that needs to be protected. Learn more about Residence Life >
Some people you see every day but never remember, and then others make a lasting impression. Jean “The Crêpe Lady” Yaglowski is one of the latter. Not only does she make delicious crêpes, but she is also well known for her optimism and her love for the Lehigh community. Her scrapbook of notes from current and former students is testament to her positive influence.
