Tent Location Process

Many campus partners were engaged to determine the best tent sites on the Ithaca Cornell campus. Every tent site needed to be accessible for all guests and within 200’ of a fire lane in order to be considered an approved tent site. Once all approved sites were identified, the Tent Location Team reviewed each site to determine the best practice for location. For more information, visit the FCS Tent Location website.
