Application Process: New Undergraduate Students

APPLY FOR HOUSING

Newly admitted First-Year and Transfer Students:

Log in to the Housing Portal to apply. 

First-year housing assignments have been released via email. If you are a first-year student who did not receive a housing assignment, we will be working during the next four weeks to offer you a bed on North Campus. We will not be able to honor preferences or roommate requests. If you did receive an assignment and have requested a room change, please note that you will need to sign your housing contract to guarantee you a bed in on-campus housing. We cannot guarantee a room change, but we will do our best to accommodate as many students as possible based on availability.

Transfer student assignments have been released via email. We have experienced increased demand for on-campus housing, and as a result have offered many transfer students temporary housing in converted study lounges within two first-year residence halls on North Campus. These quintuples are large, secured rooms with five beds (bunked), five desks, five dressers, and five wardrobes. We will be working during the coming weeks to transition students into permanent spaces.

If you are a transfer student who did not receive housing, please note that we will be working over the next four weeks to offer as many transfer student beds as possible in temporary space based on availability. We will not be able to house all transfer students who have applied for housing, and we recommend that you pursue off-campus housing options at this time.

Our Off-Campus Living website is a useful tool to help with your search: https://ccengagement.cornell.edu/off-campus-living

Incoming exchange students who are interested in on-campus housing can apply by logging in to the housing portal. Housing for fall 2018 semester is extremely limited, and we will not be able to offer many exchange students on-campus housing. We recommend that you pursue off-campus housing options at this time.
