Court-Kay-Bauer Hall, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Court-Kay-Bauer (CKB) Hall is a combination of three connected residence halls that make up one close-knit community. These four-story modern buildings opened their doors in 2001.

Court-Kay-Bauer's first-floor community spaces include expansive lounges, a large kitchen, laundry facilities, vending machines, a bike storage room, and multipurpose rooms where classes meet during the week. The second, third, and fourth floors have single and double rooms along hallways with shared bathrooms, plus a study lounge, TV lounge, and kitchen for each floor. 

Some of Court-Kay-Bauer's program traditions include First Years on Ice, Ice Cream Crawl, Chinese New Year celebration, weekly study break socials, and a yearly bus trip to the Corning Museum of Glass. Residents can also find math tutoring right in their building, and Teaching Assistants sometimes hold office hours in the multipurpose room on the first floor.
