Housing Options 

West Campus House System

The West Campus House System is an actively engaged community for upperlevel students. Each House is led by a distinguished Cornell professor, who serves as House Professor-Dean and lives in the House with their family. The five Houses – some made up of both new buildings and historic Gothic buildings – each have their own dining room. 

South Campus

Cornell's four upperlevel residence halls are located on South Campus, close to dining, shopping, and social gathering spots. Each community offers residents live-in staff support, opportunities for faculty interaction, cultural and educational programming, and social activities. 

North Campus

McGraw Place Residences 

McGraw Place residences are in several buildings located on McGraw Place.

Program Houses

Program Houses – or themed residence halls – offer students a higher level of community engagement than non-themed halls, shared through a special interest, lifestyle, or culture. These close-knit communities are made up of both upper-level students and new students. 

Co-op Housing

For an alternative living experience, some students choose to live in one of the university-owned cooperative houses, collaborative communities governed by their student residents.
