Bucknell West

Bucknell West

This complex of residential units, known as "The Mods," is situated in a wooded setting on the western edge of campus and provides accommodations for sophomores, juniors and seniors in apartment-style suites. Bucknell West is located across Route 15 from the main campus, near the Bucknell Golf Club and baseball and soccer fields. Access to the main campus is provided by a pedestrian underpass. Each H-shaped building has two wings. Each wing houses four students with two double bedrooms, a bathroom and a combination living room/kitchen.

Note: Bucknell West will undergo renovations beginning in spring 2025. Please be aware that all students who select Bucknell West for the fall 2024 semester will work with Housing Services to relocate their assigned room space for the spring semester. We encourage those who plan to move to fraternity or sorority housing or to study abroad for spring 2025 to choose these spaces during room selection.
