2.25.21: Fall 2021 Housing Information

A message sent to undergraduate students.

Dear Student,

As our spring semester continues, we are excited to share some preliminary information regarding housing opportunities for Fall 2021.

We anticipate returning to near full capacity for the fall and we hope to offer a wide selection of housing options and programs. On-campus housing is required for all first and second-year students, and we anticipate housing availability for juniors and seniors who would like to live on campus as well.

The following housing opportunities and processes will be available for those living in university housing for the 2021-22 academic year:

  • Becoming a Gryphon - Applications for the Gryphon position are being accepted through 12:00 Noon on Monday, March 1. If you are interested in submitting your application to the Gryphon position this week, you can access that information here.
  • Joining a Theme Community - If you’d like to live with others who share a common interest, joining a theme community might be just what you’re looking for to begin making some new connections next year! Past theme communities at Lehigh have included: STEM, Umoja House, Eco House, Music Appreciation, Creative Vibes, Community Service, Outdoor Adventure, First Generation House and more. Look for a separate communication regarding next year’s Theme Housing opportunities in the coming weeks.
  • Living in Fraternity or Sorority Housing- if you are a rising second year and you joined a residential fraternity or sorority, you will be expected to live there as a new member. Rising juniors and seniors wishing to live in the chapter house are always welcome to do so based upon availability. Chapter leadership will be given housing capacity for 21-22 as well as information on how to submit housing lists the week of March 8th. Contact your chapter leadership to learn more about living in the chapter house for the 2021-22 school year. All residential fraternities and sororities are owned and managed by the university but leased to Greek organizations on a yearly basis.
  • Housing Lottery and Room Selection Process - Rising juniors and seniors can register for our on-campus Housing Lottery. Rising second-year students who have not joined a fraternity or sorority are guaranteed housing and will be required to select housing during this process. Students can enter the Lottery for apartments, suites and residence hall singles and doubles in a wide variety of buildings including our new residential complex Singleton, Hitch, & Maida Houses, Farrington Square, Sayre Park Village, Brodhead House, Warren Squares and the Houses.

A detailed timeline for each of these processes will be posted on the Housing Services website the week of March 8th. Any questions can be forwarded by email to inhouse@lehigh.edu.
