Every housing option provides an opportunity for a strong and connected community.

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 are coed, except for Balch Hall, which is for first-year women only. All have single and double rooms; some also have triples and quads.

All first-year residences are grouped together on north campus, along with eight residential Program Houses, the Carol Tatkon Center for first-year students, two active community centers, three dining rooms, two cafes, a convenience store and grill, two athletic facilities, basketball and tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court.
