First-Year Undergraduate Students
All first-year undergraduate students are required to live on campus. Students find that this offers them the chance to make close connections to friends and immerse themselves in the campus. Each first-year residence hall is unique, but they all surround the academic core of the campus and offer a short walk to classes, the libraries, the gym and all the activities taking place on campus.
Most residence hall rooms are doubles, with a limited number of singles and triples. All residence hall rooms are equipped with a telephone line, cable and direct Internet access. Lounges, kitchens and study rooms give you ample room to work, relax and enjoy time with fellow students. All Lehigh residence halls are smoke free.
If you plan to commute to Lehigh, you will need to petition the Office of Residential Services for exemption from the residency requirement.
