Changes coming to Farrington Square, the Mail Center, and Bookstore
The Lehigh University Bookstore, formally renamed The Lehigh Store, will be getting a new look with a more modern course material process to reflect current needs and shopping habits.
Additional summer updates include:
- A complete renovation of the first floor that will show off our Lehigh pride, a new faculty and alumni author feature wall, a new course materials customer service desk, a larger selection of Lehigh apparel and gifts, and a new tech store featuring Apple products.
- To address recent increases in package volume and turnaround times, the Mail Center will move across Farrington Square into the 2nd floor. Besides providing student mail and package services, the Mail Center will be the central pick-up location for course materials. This location will also include a new intelligent locker system for students living in Farrington Square.
- To accommodate the new Mail Center location, the Bookstore Café will be removed. In the fall, members of the campus community may visit Lehigh Dining Services or one of the great local Southside restaurants and coffee shops including Johnny’s Bagels and Deli, The Cup, Lit, Saxby’s, Zekraft, and more.
The current mail center and bookstore will remain open during renovations.
Lastly, there will be a vacancy at 4 Farrington Square once the Mail Center relocates in late July. University Business Services is working collaboratively with the Student Senate’s Subcommittee on Facilities and Services to brainstorm possible tenants that meet student needs and complement the existing Southside business community.
A ribbon-cutting and open house will be held this fall.
