Cornell University

Student life

Life at Cornell is meant to pique your curiosity and stimulate your intellect at every turn. Whether that means conversations with faculty members over dinner at your residence hall or a trip to New York City for underground jazz, the opportunities are yours for the choosing. Graduate student or undergrad, you'll find clubs, organizations, activities and traditions to enrich any life—and that's just the formalized groups and events. With over 1,000 student organizations on Cornell's campus, you can certainly find something to do, day or night.

Cornell University Library stands at the center of intellectual life on campus. Expert librarians are available in person—and online 24/7—to help navigate our world-class collections and assist with papers, exam prep, and long-term projects.


First-year undergraduates live with their classmates on North Campus. The Carol Takton Center serves as the hub of activity, Faculty Fellows seem to be around every corner, and residence hall advisors are never far away. Cornell Dining is ranked in the top 10 university dining experiences in the country.

As an upper-level student, you can home in on the communities you've found and thrive in most. Move to West Campus, a fraternity or sorority, or a co-op. You can even stay on North Campus in a themed residence hall, or venture off-campus to the apartments and rental homes in Collegetown or the greater Ithaca area.

Seven undergraduate units and four graduate and professional units in Ithaca, two medical graduate and professional units in New York City, and one in Doha, Qatar. The Cornell Tech campus in New York City is the latest addition.

Twenty-three hundred acres at the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region. Ithaca (University Campus) has been named one of the top 100 places to live, a top 10 recreation city, a best green place to live, and one of the "foodiest" towns in America. For the bustle of city life, head off campus to the Ithaca Commons or Collegetown. Not busy enough? The City of Syracuse is under an hour away, and frequent buses to NYC allow for day trips.
