More than just a building, the Clayton University Center at Packer Hall is the heart of the Lehigh campus. With this renovation, the Clayton University Center not only will be restored to its original grandeur, but also reinvented into a vibrant, continually active space that fosters collaboration and community among students. It will equip them with the skills to navigate and lead in today’s diverse society.

The Clayton University Center renovation will help create a richer and more vibrant Lehigh community by providing:

  • Updated facilities and amenities. The renovation will provide newer, more modern, and more efficient facilities for today’s students. Enhancements include fresh dining spaces, additional recreational and work spaces, and amenities such as a convenience store and a pub.
  • A true hub for student life. From dedicated meeting rooms for student clubs to refreshed offices for student life and services, students, faculty, and staff will collaborate under one roof – together – for the first time.
  • Welcoming spaces to encourage growth and strengthen ties. As a central location where students will want to spend time, the Clayton University Center will foster opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, form lifelong bonds, and create their own home on campus.
  • Stronger Lehigh traditions. When you bring people together, you can unify them around shared experiences and common aspirations, strengthening culture and traditions. The new spaces in the Clayton University Center will allow students to more regularly gather for celebrations, concerts, dances, meetings, and more.
