Lehman Hall houses more than 500 students, the majority of whom enjoy suite-style accommodations. 

It is divided into two sections, Lehman North (LN) and Lehman South (LS). In addition to being a residence hall, Lehman Hall includes the Lehman Dining Center, which features our all-you-care-to-eat buffet dining experience and Hurley's programming space.
