Cornell University

North Campus Service Centers

Spring 2020

As the number of students, staff, and faculty remaining on campus dwindles this spring, we're doing our best to maintain services while consolidating where possible to better use staff resources and maintain everyone's safety. 

To that end, we're closing the Appel Commons Service Center, and consolidating North Campus service center operations to the Robert Purcell Community Center. 

For now, the RPCC Service Center will be open 9am-4pm daily.

Residents who have been getting mail and packages at Appel Commons will now be able to pick it up (and access other service center resources) at RPCC. That includes students, faculty-in-residence, and live-in staff in North Campus residence halls, though it does not include residents of Hasbrouck Apartments.

As always, you'll get an e-mail if a mail item or package arrives for you; there's no need to check regularly.

Thanks for your patience as we do our best to keep everything operating smoothly for those members of the Cornell community remaining on and around campus during an extraordinary time.
