Campus life

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).
