Cornell University

Welcome to Cornell's Living-Learning Communities

You'll find a strong connection between living and learning at Cornell as you settle into your new home. Over 55% of undergraduate students live on campus, learning from and growing with people who bring a wide variety of experiences, perspectives, and interests. For tours of program houses and residence halls, see @CornellHousing on Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.

FALL 2022 move-in:

Detailed move-in information will be sent to all students (new and returning) in mid-June along with housing assignment information. Residence halls open for fall beginning on August 15 through August 17 for new students, and August 18 and 19 for upper-level students. Students will be able to select their arrival time on their assigned dates. Students should wait until they receive their housing assignment before they finalize their arrival plans. Classes begin on Monday August 22, 2022.
