About Lafayette College

A beautiful campus overlooking the historic Delaware River. A tradition-rich liberal arts college. A selective enrollment small enough to make you feel like you belong to a real community. A college large enough to give you unique opportunities across the arts, sciences and engineering. This is Lafayette.

In March 1826, the citizens of Easton received a charter signed by the governor of Pennsylvania establishing Lafayette College. The vision: to teach the habits and subjects of a disciplined mind, the skills to conduct careful research and come to considered conclusions, and the desire and ability to lead a purposeful life.

Campus information

There are 69 buildings here, comprising approximately 1.76 million square feet, on 340 acres, including a 230-acre athletic campus.Find yourself among a close-knit population of 2,450 students, drawn from 46 U.S. states and territories, as well as 48 countries. We have 215 full-time faculty members, of whom 99 percent hold a doctorate or other terminal degree. This gives us an enviable 10.5 to 1 student-faculty ratio.

We overlook the Delaware River in Easton, Pennsylvania, population 30,000. Easton is located in the Lehigh Valley, population 800,000; about 70 miles west of New York City and 60 miles north of Philadelphia. The scenic Pocono Mountains are about 35 miles north.


Housing is guaranteed for all four years with 21 residence halls in a mix of architectural styles and a safe campus environment.

Options range from traditional residence halls with singles, doubles or suites to town homes and our sorority and fraternity houses. Special living options are available for students who share common interests, such as the arts, foreign culture and language, or academic, athletic and civic connections.
