Clara Dickson Hall is the largest residential community on North Campus, housing more than 460 first-year students. A large and beautiful Colonial-style brick building, Dickson is centrally located and is right next to a popular sand volleyball court.
Dickson's Residence Hall Director, Faculty-in-Residence member, and student Resident Assistants plan and host plenty of programs and activities for all interests, including volleyball tournaments, an annual trip to Niagara Falls, bowling, brownie nights, picnics in the Cornell Plantations, and a ropes-course challenge.
Dickson Hall rooms do not have air conditioning.
Kit (Christopher) Umbach, Professor (Adjunct) in the department of Materials Science and Engineering, is the Faculty-in-Residence for Dickson Hall and McLLU. He lives in an apartment in the building and regularly spends time with student members of the Dickson/McLLU community.
Dickson and McLLU also have a number of Faculty and Community Fellows that provide students with opportunities to explore and cultivate their academic, intellectual, and cultural interests. You will find them attending events in your building, eating with students in the dining room, and leading on and off campus trips to lectures, plays, films, concerts, and regional points of interest.
