Trustees vote on former Lehigh Valley campus property sale

November 20, 2015

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State’s Lehigh Valley campus found a new location in 2009, leaving behind 42 acres for sale in Fogelsville. On Friday (Nov. 20), the Penn State Board of Trustees approved the sale of the property to a charter school for $2.75 million.

Due to growing enrollment six years ago, the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus moved 16 miles from the original site in Fogelsville to the campus' current location in Upper Saucon Township near Allentown, Pennsylvania. Known as Center Valley, the current site is the fifth location of the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus since 1912.

The Fogelsville property also includes three buildings and 365 parking spaces. The University leased the main building to the Circle of Seasons Charter School, with an option to purchase the property outright. The charter school is now pursuing that option.
