The Cottage

A new campus living space for students, this house dubbed The Cottage was first occupied by Cornell students in the fall of 2015. It is located on the west side of campus on First Street SW, across from Ash Park. Built c. 1900, the arts and crafts style cottage has a lot of character and vintage charm.

Today The Cottage is home to Third Wave Resource Group (TWRG). The eight students who live there open the house to the campus community to offer a safe, comfortable environment for community members which provides information, equality and empowerment informed by feminism.
