Welcome to the Cornell community and life on campus.  Whether you're just beginning to explore Cornell, or you've already made your decision to come here, we're here to introduce you to Living @ Cornell. 

At Cornell, you'll have one of the best learning experiences - and one of the best living experiences, too. You'll meet new students who bring a variety of cultures, experiences, and interests. And you'll have a chance to explore your new "home" as you settle into one of our many campus residential neighborhoods.

You'll also get your first taste of Cornell Dining, ranked by Princeton Review as one of the top ten among U.S. colleges and universities for best campus food.  A central part of Living @ Cornell is dining with your friends. There is always something new and different to choose from at our award-winning dining facilities, which include All You Care to Eat dining rooms, plus coffee houses, cafes, and convenience stores. From holiday-theme meals to chef surprises and dining room special nights, staff members work with our student dining committees throughout the year to provide dining excitement in unexpected ways.

Want to plunge into campus activities, hang out, or grab a cup of coffee? Cornell's community and student centers are hubs of activity around campus.  They're great places to meet people, get a bite to eat, experience Cornell's thriving social scene, find a place to study, or work out in a fitness center.
