Sheldon Court is located next to the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts in Collegetown, one of the most exciting and festive parts of Cornell's campus. Just steps away are popular restaurants, coffee shops, stores, and social gathering spots. Originally built as a privately owned residence for students in the Italianate style, Sheldon Court is an early example of student housing on a scale well beyond the boarding houses that were already becoming popular near campus.
The Collegetown residence halls enjoy close proximity to the intellectual, cultural, and culinary perks of West Campus, while maintaining their own unique character and independence. Special programming and activities abound, offering lots of opportunities for social interaction. One popular tradition is SunFest, an outdoor picnic with live entertainment held every spring in Collegetown.
Sheldon Court rooms do not have air conditioning.
The Collegetown Residence Halls 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, and leading on and off campus trips to lectures, plays, films, concerts, and regional points of interest.
