Jameson Hall

Tall Jameson Hall building nestled between green trees

With the Robert Purcell Community Center and Toni Morrison dining just a few feet from their front doors, High Rise 5 and Jameson Hall are located right in the thick of Cornell's North Campus community. 

Both are pod-style residences, featuring multi-bedroom pods arranged around a central lounge and a kitchen on each floor. The buildings' most dramatic features are their top-floor Skylounges, which overlook all of North Campus, the university golf course (also great for cross-country skiing), and Fuertes Observatory.
