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 and YouTube.
