Summer Housing On Campus

Summer 2021

Summer 2021 housing information will be updated as soon as decisions are made related to summer programs.

COVID-19 Update

Cornell's Summer Session will be hosted as online classes for Summer 2020. Please check the Summer Sessions website for information on when on-campus classes will begin. Summer housing will be considered only for eligible Cornell students.

Undergraduate Students/Graduate & Professional Students:

Eligible undergraduate students will stay in designated residence halls on Cornell's North Campus. All housing accommodations will be single rooms. Live-in residential staff members are available to support students throughout their stay. Men and women will have separate bathroom facilities. Self-service laundry facilities are located in the building. Common areas (lounges, bathrooms) are cleaned daily. Depending on the building, most bedrooms are not air conditioned; a box fan is recommended.

Rates and Date Ranges:
Undergraduate summer housing rates are $43.25 per person, per night for a single. When you apply for summer housing, you will have the opportunity to request a date range for your stay. Check-in begins at 12:00pm and checkout is by 10:00am on the date of departure. Additional charges may apply for approved early check-in and late check-out.

Housing fees are refundable only if you officially withdraw from your program, or leave housing prior to August 1, 2020. Please email if your plans change and you do leave campus and are eligible for a refund. All refunds are prorated and are assessed a $100 processing fee.

Note: Your housing contract is binding and you agree to the summer housing terms and conditions at the time you submit your housing application.
