Upperlevel Undergraduate On-Campus Housing
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.
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.
