  • DeSales University Off Campus Housing
  • At DeSales University, we encourage all students to take advantage of the Benefits of Living On Campus during their four years.  All first-year students are required to either live on campus or commute from home.  Starting in the sophomore year, DeSales University respects the right of any student to chose off-campus living in the various neighborhoods of the Lehigh Valley.   Moving off-campus is a big decision and it is important to be prepared and well-informed.  The resources on this site are intended to assist you in this process.

    First, it is important to note that students currently living on campus are bound by the Housing and Meal Plan Contract, which is for the full academic year.  Students who are looking into the option of off-campus housing during the academic year must prepare and submit a written letter requesting release from the housing contract to the Vice President for Student Life.  Students are strongly encouraged to follow this request process prior to signing a lease off campus, as approvals for release are discretionary and reserved for extreme circumstances. 

    DeSales University requires that students living off-campus follow all laws of the municipality where they reside, including zoning ordinances.  Students should also be informed that once they leave the confines of the University, they are subject to civil procedures and penalties of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and local municipalities.  Students and their parents are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the neighborhoods of the Lehigh Valley that tend to be popular areas for off-campus student housing.  At minimum, we suggest reviewing website for PA State Police (includes crime statistics for PA cities) and for each local municipality.  Students are also encouraged to view a map of Lehigh Valley area to help determine the locations of the townships listed below.
