Moving In On Campus

Spring 2023

All undergraduate students moving in for Spring 2023 should select a timeslot for moving in via our Housing Portal.  Instructions will be included in housing assignments/confirmations. For planning purposes, new students will arrive to campus beginning on Thursday, January 19, 2023 so that they may participate in Orientation activities. Returning students should log in to the Housing Portal to schedule your arrival day/time. Please read what to pack, and what not to bring.Plans for arrival and move-in may change if the CDC, New York State, or Cornell change guidance to ensure we provide a safe environment.
