Lehigh is a premier private residential research university. 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 five colleges have earned a reputation for their entrepreneurial and interdisciplinary approach to learning.Today, more than 75,000 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 750,000 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).

The cornerstone of the Lehigh experience is flexibility, and we encourage our undergraduate students to take courses outside of your college to create an education that is as unique as you are. Remember, your professors will be more than teachers: They will be research partners and mentors.Here at Lehigh, innovation is not an elective. Existing thinking provides a structure—so that you can knock it down and use the pieces to build a new path forward. Our students see the world as a dynamic place where their ideas and imagination allow them to find a new perspective. After all, future leaders don’t just learn how it’s done … they discover how to do it better.At Lehigh, you can pursue 90 programs and majors. But you also have the chance to customize your learning experience by fusing together traditionally separate fields—choosing from 20 multidisciplinary programs that are fresh, exciting and uniquely Lehigh.

Lehigh is a doctoral-granting university with a professional alumni network that spans six continents. Our alumni are driven and highly-accomplished, with a demonstrable track record of success in industry and academia.Our graduate students are leaders in their fields and serve in their communities.
