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. 

  • Cascadilla Hall 
  • 112 Edgemoor 
  • Schuyler House  [Schuyler House is currently being used for quarantine housing; we anticipate it returning to a residence hall facility for fall 2021, unless the COVID-19 prevalence results in the building needing to be used for quarantine housing.]
  • Sheldon Court 
North Campus
  • Townhouse Community For sophomores, transfer students and first-year students, in academic year 2021 - 2022

McGraw Place Residences

  • Details about two buildings available to upperlevel students will be added soon
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 upperlevel 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. 

On-campus housing is GUARANTEED for all sophomores who meet the application deadlines and requirements.
