Upperlevel Undergraduate On-Campus Housing
Planning for fall 2022 on-campus housing
Dates for information sessions will be posted soon. Scroll down to read about the housing options. The sign-up period will begin in January 2022.
Updates for fall 2021 and spring 2022
As of mid-July 2021 all on-campus rooms are booked so it’s unlikely we’ll be able to offer you on-campus housing for fall 2021. Please pursue off-campus housing. The Off-Campus Living Office has a wide range of resources, information, and a listing site to help in your search.
If you applied and are no longer interested in living on campus, please cancel your housing application from the "status" page of your 2021-2022 Academic Year application in the housing portal.
For spring 2022, on-campus housing will be available and the application opens October 1, 2021.
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.
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.
- Townhouse Community For sophomores, transfer students and first-year students, in academic year 2021 - 2022
McGraw Place Residences
McGraw Place residences are in several buildings located on McGraw Place.
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 upperlevel students and new students.
