Cornell University

Veteran Program House

Housing Location

625 University Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

Having opened Fall 2021, in collaboration with the Cornell Undergraduate Veterans Association, this program house joins together the student-veteran community and civic-minded undergraduate and graduate students to live in a communal, co-ed environment. While the focus of the program house is to support Cornell’s Student-Veterans, having a diverse residential program will help foster an atmosphere that not only benefits veteran and civil service related students, but also creates greater awareness of Student-Veterans and the unique challenges they face.

The Veteran Program House also serves as a supportive community to further the success of the Cornell military-affiliated community at large. This community includes graduate and professional Student-Veterans, staff and faculty, as well as ROTC students who look to serve our nation upon graduation and would benefit from interacting with veterans who have "been there and done that."
