First Generation Residential Community

The First Generation housing community’s mission is to constantly provide first generation college students with additional resources and communal support, all while celebrating the diversity and richness of each individual’s background. This community aims to empower first generation students by supplementing education in a way that is conducive to different learning styles, alleviating family stress and pressures by providing a supportive and stress free environment, and celebrating the richness and privileges of being a first generation college student. We encourage ALL first generation students to apply to live in this community.

If you are interested in living in a themed residential community catering specifically to first generation college students,please visit the themed housing community website at https://studentaffairs.lehigh.edu/content/themed-housing-communities. Please forward any questions regarding this process to the Office of Residence Life at inlife@lehigh.edu
