Cornell University

Graduate & Professional Student On-Campus Housing

Whether you're a single student, or have a spouse, partner, or family, you'll find a variety of living options available to you at Cornell and in the Ithaca area. The options are in three categories:  on-campus housing, Maplewood Apartments, and other off-campus housing. 95% of Cornell's graduate and professional students live in residences that are not university-owned.

On-Campus Housing

  • Hasbrouck Apartments – studios, 1-bedroom apartments, shared 2-bedroom apartments, and shared 2-bedroom townhouses. Hasbrouck is a large, friendly neighborhood, home to both single students and to those with partners or families. Hasbrouck is especially ideal for families with young children.
  • Cooperative housing – Some single students choose to live in one of Cornell's cooperative communities. While typically home to undergraduate students, some co-ops are also open to graduate and professional students. Contact the individual houses about graduate occupancy and current vacancies.

Apply for Housing 

The application opens at 11am on February 20th. Housing applications are accepted on a rolling basis. If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact Graduate Housing by phone at 607-255-9764. If you have a specific housing need due to a disability, please first register with Student Disability Services (SDS). Occupancy limits: Please note that Cornell's family/partner units can accommodate two to four people. No more than two adults are permitted per unit.

Maplewood Apartments

Maplewood Apartments is a new community that opened in 2019 in partnership with Greystar, a developer that specializes in creating and managing great residential communities. Located close to campus and grocery/dining options, Maplewood Apartments makes graduate living fit your lifestyle. Their fully furnished studio to four-bedroom apartments and townhouses come with all utilities included, personal bathrooms for every resident, and a private washer and dryer in each apartment. The community also permits pets and has a free fitness center on-site.

Other Off-Campus Housing

The Ithaca area has numerous off-campus living options. Save time by using the resources of our Off-Campus Living office to learn about neighborhoods, leases, landlords, resources, and search in our rental listings database.

Cornell Dining Meal Plans

If you'll be eating meals regularly on campus, a Cornell Dining meal plan will save you money, and allow you to make purchases with your Cornell ID card. Choose from three meal plan options we recommend for graduate and professional students. Cornell Dining operates 30 eateries on campus, and is consistently rated in the top ten for best college food among all colleges and universities in the country.
