Vedder Hall

Exterior of 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.

Note: We are excited to announce a renovation to Vedder Hall in 2021-22! Due to this project, the structure of housing in Vedder will look a bit different. For the 2021-22 academic year, half of Vedder will be home to students of the Class of 2025 and the other half will be home to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Because of the nature of the project, the upperclass section will be operational for fall 2021 only. This area is highly recommended for upperclass students planning to change rooms or study abroad for spring 2022.
