Cornell University

Residence Halls

Cornell's residence halls are vibrant and diverse communities where our students live, learn, and pursue their passions. Each one is a center of activity, study, socialization, cultural exploration, and fun.

A network of staff members, upperlevel student RAs, and professors provide a built-in support system through the residence hall living-learning experience. Interaction with faculty members is nurtured through the Faculty in Residence and Faculty Fellows programs, among other opportunities for engagement.

Our residence halls for upperlevel students are coed. All have single and double rooms; some also have triples and quads. Our housing options vary in physical location and environmental design. Please note that not every building has elevator access, air conditioning, wheelchair accessible rooms, and/or private bathrooms. Please see individual housing pages for more information, or contact the Housing Office at or 607-255-5368.

These communities are located on our South Campus in the Collegetown area, close to dining, shopping, and social gathering spots.
