Housing

Housing in Ithaca goes quickly, so you will want to begin your search soon. Your housing options include:

University Housing

Limited university graduate housing is available. On-campus housing consists of apartments and townhouses located on or just off campus, and it is possible for new students to apply for university housing for just Summer 2018. To research the available options and submit an application, visit the Graduate & Professional Student Housing website. Please note, summer housing typically is available after you start the summer, so you may need to make short-term temporary arrangements like a hotel for some of the days/first weeks.

Note: when applying for graduate housing, you should complete the forms labeled New Student (for those students without a university-issued NetID).

Off-Campus Rental Housing

Most students at Cornell choose to live in apartments located in houses or apartment complexes. Find out the top choices of Johnson students in the 2018 Johnson Housing Guide (the 2019 housing guide will be available in March 2019) and use the information available from Cornell’s Off-Campus Living Office, which includes a database of available properties, Ithaca neighborhoods, and other resources.

The apartments at Collegetown Terrace often work well for Cornell Tech MBA students since they have flexible move-in dates. Some amenities of the complex include a range of room sizes, from studios to 3-bedroom units; some fully-furnished units; free wireless internet; free fitness center access; covered parking spots; and a location that is only a 10-minute walk to campus.
