Being that Lehman is a commuter college, there are no dormitories on campus. Recently, a townhouse near Lehman was turned into student housing, and students who live in the other outer boroughs who have to travel up to two hours to get to class are given priority to apply to live in this townhouse. Students who live there must pay rent (though the prices aren’t as ridiculously steep as other rentals in the Bronx).
There have been plans to turn more nearby residences into student housing because so many students have expressed an eager interest in living closer to campus (if not directly on campus). However, if students are interested in CUNY housing, they can apply to live in the Towers at City College, but priority is given to students who attend City College.
