University Buildings

Lehigh has a major collection of 19th century buildings designed by such prominent architects as Addison Hutton (1834-1916), Edward T. Potter (1831-1904), A. W. Leh (1848-1918), and the firm of Furness and Evans (Frank Furness, 1839-1912).

Zoellner Arts Center (1996), designed by Dagit Saylor Architects and located just east of the Rauch Business Center (1990), houses a 1,000-seat music auditorium, a 300-seat theatre, a permanent art gallery and museum store, and the departments of music and theatre. A 350-car parking garage is on the same site.

The university has seen numerous buildings constructed and renovated since 2000 on all three campuses. New Mountaintop Campus construction includes an addition to Iacocca Hall for biological sciences (2003), and ongoing renovations in Building C (since 2013) for the Mountaintop Experience.

New construction on Goodman Campus includes the Mulvihill Golf Learning Center (2007), the Ulrich Sports Complex (2002), the Gould Shenfeld Half-Time Building (2015), and the Leadership Field Softball Complex and Legacy Field Baseball Complex (2015).  Additions have been made to Cundey Varsity House (2002, 2015) and Stabler Arena (2004).

New buildings on the Asa Packer Campus include a police station at Taylor and E. Packer Streets in 2016; the STEPS building (Science, Technology, Environment, Policy and Society) in 2010, Lehigh’s first LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building, which achieved Gold status in 2011; Campus Square in 2002, a residential and retail complex (later renamed Farrington Square in honor of Lehigh’s 12th president); the Health, Science and Technology Building, which opened in spring 2022 as the home of the College of Health; and the Business Innovation Building, which opened in spring 2023. Williams Hall was completely renovated in 2015 to become a global hub for students, achieving Silver LEED status. There was also an addition to Sinclair Lab in 2005.

New  campus enhancements have eliminated vehicular traffic and created landscaped walkways in the historic core of the Asa Packer Campus. A 350-car parking garage pavilion and visitors arrival court (2005) at the west entrance to the Alumni Memorial Building completed the project.

Altogether, the three campuses contain more than 160 buildings with more than 4.5 million square feet of floor space.
