Lehigh University

Lehigh University

Pennsylvania, United States | Private


The university is located in the beautiful lap of Lehigh Valley in the 2500-acre sprawling campus. Out of the whole campus, 180 acres of land includes recreational fields and 150 buildings. The campus is divided in a constant thread of land around the South Mountain namely the Asia Packer Campus (predominant), Mountaintop Campus (sports field and art hall), Murray Goodman Campus (16000-seat stadium and other sports facilities). Lehigh also houses the gothic architecture-style library called the ‘Linderman Library' which owns a rare collection of 40,000 volumes of books. Students wish that the positioning of the library was closed to the dorms of Lehigh.
