For the 2024-2025 academic year, there are seven upper-class themed housing communities which continue to foster students’ connections to both Lehigh and the greater Bethlehem community:

The Bakery - Community for Innovators & Entrepreneurs -   Powered by the Baker Institute for Entrepreneurship, Creativity, and Innovation, this community is for those interested in exploring opportunities that create value for others by leveraging their combined creativity and ingenuity. By participating in exclusive workshops, going on one-of-a-kind trips, and taking advantage of priority access to Baker Institute resources*, residents of this community will develop their entrepreneurial mindset and build real-world skills that are certain to reshape their future!  Those that would like to be considered a part of this community will go through an Application process. 

Outdoor Enthusiasts -Nestled amidst mountains and woodlands, Lehigh beckons outdoor enthusiasts with its plethora of outdoor activities. Our mission, encapsulated in the GREEN principles - Growth, Retention, Enthusiasm, Events, and Nature - is to forge robust connections with the outdoors, promote preservation efforts, lead responsibly, host inclusive events, and champion the ethos of leaving no trace.

STEM - A community for students looking to enhance their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics outside of the classroom and develop the skills necessary to be chosen leaders in their field. Note: If you are in the RARE program, you are required to live within this community during your second year. 

UMOJA - UMOJA, which means "unity" in Swahili, allows residents to develop a sense of community through a shared exploration of diversity and multiculturalism.
