Please note that the registration for housing is separate from registration for the course.
Housing is available at Lehigh University’s Trembley Park apartment complex. These dormitories are located on the south side of Bethlehem, about 1.7 miles away from the Moravian Archives. Script students may walk, drive/carpool, or take a ride share to come to class each day.
Each apartment features three single bedrooms, a kitchen (with stove and refrigerator), a living room, and a bathroom. All units are air-conditioned. Though a kitchen is available, students will need to provide their own plates, cups, utensils, pots, pans, etc. if they are interested in utilizing the space.

Housing at Lehigh University is $45.00 per student per night and bedrooms are limited to a single occupant. A linen bundle is available to “rent” for $30.00 for the length of your stay. The bundle includes sheets, blanket, pillow, pillowcase, towels, and washcloth. The University will not change or wash these linens during your stay but a laundry room is available.
For those bringing/renting a vehicle, parking is available for $8.00 per car per day. Vehicles must be registered with Lehigh University prior to arrival.
