Students gathering

Cornell's residence halls are more than places to sleep -- they're where students live, learn, play, and grow together. As a residential college, more than 90 percent of Cornell students live on campus.

As a first-year student, you'll share a floor with other first-years, forming an instant support group. Each of Cornell's residence halls boasts all the amenities you'll need: laundry facilities, a kitchen, cable TV in the lounges, and Internet connections, for starters. Room options range from traditional doubles to singles, suites, and apartments.
