Pizza places "on the hill" close by 11 p.m., at the latest. But that doesn't stop the late-night binge on campus.
According to 23-year-old grad student Dan Ruch, the closest and most popular place to eat after midnight is the 24-hour WaWa.
"During event weekends WaWa can be a mob scene late at night. There are lots of people who have done lots of drinking hooting and hollering. Fights even break out occasionally," he says.
Those who want the food without the drama can take a short drive into town and visit the Wendy's, Burger King and Taco Bell late-night drive-thrus.
Or, if you're feeling inclined to fix your own food, head to the 24-hour Giant supermarket in Forks Township.

Nick Cramsey, a Lehigh grad student, says the best places to relieve your midnight munchies in Bethlehem are Pantry One (open 24 hours), Casa Mia (open until 2 a.m.) and Wendy's (drive-thru open until 1 a.m.).
But he cautions students to time their munching right. "When you go anywhere between 1 and 2:30 [in the morning], traffic picks up. During finals Pantry One is busy all the time. You could walk in there at three in the morning and it could feel like the afternoon," he says.
Cramsey also says that ordering from Dominos Pizza (open until 1 a.m. during the week and 3 a.m. on weekends) and Lehigh Pizza (open until midnight during the week and 1 a.m. on weekends) is very popular.
"When I lived in Campus Square there was always a Dominoes truck parked outside. It was great because they delivered right to your door," he says.
