Most current undergraduate students select their on-campus rooms – and roommate(s) or blockmates – for the following year through the General Room Selection process that takes place at the beginning of each spring semester. Students sign up online for housing to receive their randomly generated General Room Selection timeslot. During their timeslot, they log in to the Housing Portal to select their room and sign their housing contract. The General Room Selection process for 2018-2019 housing has been completed.
Current undergraduate students who are interested in on-campus housing can apply by logging in to the housing portal. Housing for the fall 2018 semester is extremely limited, and we will not be able to offer on-campus housing to everyone who applies. We recommend that you pursue off-campus housing options.
Our Off-Campus Living website is a useful tool to help with your search: https://ccengagement.cornell.edu/off-campus-living
If you are interested in applying to live in a Program House or a co-op, these communities have their own application processes. Information will be available at Program Houses or Cooperative Housing.
If you currently live in a Program House, upperlevel residence hall, or West Campus House and would like to live in the same building next year, you may take part in your community's In-Hall or In-House Continued Occupancy process. Dates and details will be available from your Hall or House leadership.
Students who meet the application deadlines and requirements are guaranteed on-campus housing for their sophomore year. Juniors and seniors are not guaranteed on-campus housing, but there is almost always housing available for those who want it. Visit On-Campus Housing Guarantees for more details.
Students returning from leave for fall 2018 will be able to apply for housing beginning in Early April, 2018. Housing assignments will begin in July, based on availability.
Please refer to the links below more information. Note that specific dates and details will be added through the fall semester as they are confirmed.
