Vedder Hall

Vedder Hall is located in the heart of Bucknell’s lower campus, a short walk from the Elaine Langone Center, 7 th Street Café, and Lewisburg’s vibrant downtown. Completed in 1965, Vedder is named in honor of donors Lee N. and Grace Q. Vedder.

Renovations to Vedder Hall are underway and will be completed in 2022!
