This sustainably designed new facility will serve as the home of our College of Health and provide modern, flexible research and teaching space for faculty working across the university. Anchoring the northeast corner of campus, HST will encourage an interdisciplinary culture via maximized transparency and accountability; develop functional neighborhoods that promote collaboration, communication and flexibility; and serve as an important new crossroads for Lehigh students, industry external partners and the public.

This video provides a sneak peek at the way HST will help connect Lehigh to South Bethlehem and bring greater vitality to our campus core.
