Letter From The Director

On behalf of the Office of Residential Education I would like to welcome you to Bucknell University. Living on campus will provide you with opportunities to make new friends and learn from faculty and staff. We are committed to providing intentional and deliberate educational experiences that support the academic mission of the University.

With building community as a priority of our work, we hope that your residence hall will become your home away from home. We look forward to providing educational opportunities in an environment that enhances your learning and growth in areas including academic success, exploration and leadership, community, diversity and inclusion, social justice and wellness.

We are excited to have you living with us. If we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to visit or contact our office at 570.577.1195. Residential Education is located in Vedder Hall, suite 126.
