Students living on campus at Lehigh University in Summer 2021 are required to select a meal plan for each session they are enrolled. As a residential campus, our goal is for students to experience all that Lehigh has to offer and engage in socialization in dining locations (an important part of college experience). Dining together fosters community and having a meal plan makes eating convenient, saves time and ensures access to nutritious options.
