Safety Program for Off-Campus Living Cornell has partnered with the Building Division of the City of Ithaca to create an online system that displays the relative safety information of City rental properties. This system is updated daily with key safety information, including: fire safety, notifications systems, construction type and property use. This information provides students and their parents with an opportunity to make informed decisions in choosing safe living environments.
