ABOUT LEHIGH

Recognized among the nation's premier research universities, Lehigh offers a rigorous academic community for nearly 7,000 students. Our ideal size, student-to-faculty ratio and vibrant campus allow students to collaborate on projects in and out of the classroom.

Most of our students—undergraduate and graduate—live on campus, allowing research and discovery to happen almost anywhere. We are ranked in the top tier of national research universities each year, and our four colleges have earned a reputation for their entrepreneurial and interdisciplinary approach to learning.

Today, more than 77,000 alumni from around the world have earned a Lehigh diploma, and nearly 96% of last year’s graduates have gone on to find career-related opportunities just six months after leaving campus.

Located in Pennsylvania’s scenic Lehigh Valley, the campus is in close proximity to both New York City and Philadelphia and is right in the middle of the Mid-Atlantic corridor. The Lehigh Valley region is home to about 820,000 people, giving our students and the campus community plenty to do. Our campus is on South Mountain in Bethlehem and actually consists of three contiguous areas: The Asa Packer Campus (home to most of our academic and residential buildings), Mountaintop Campus and the Murray H. Goodman Campus (where many of our athletic facilities are located).
