Welcome to the Townhouse Community! We are the only apartment style residential community on North Campus, where we work to foster an environment of independence, fun, and academic growth.

As a member of the Townhouse Community, you will be living with three other first year or transfer students in a mini apartment – complete with a full kitchen and living room! Together with the residential staff, you will develop valuable life skills and adapt to college and your new apartment. The community is a short walk from the tennis and basketball courts, and we have our very own sand volleyball court.

The Townhouse Community is divided into four quads, each with two upperclassmen Resident Advisors (RAs). These mentors will be with you the entire year, providing advice and planning awesome events for the entire community. What kind of events? From community service with the Special Olympics to volleyball tournaments, s’mores nights, make your own dumplings, Cuban Night, Crunch Fest, Polar Plunge to professional networking events with faculty and more. In addition, we have our very own Faculty-in-Residence (FIR), Chris Hernandez. He and his family live in a townhouse with the rest of the community, and once a month he opens his home to the community for a reception full of delicious food and conversation with various Cornell professors. By taking advantage of programs such as these, you can enjoy free food, opportunities to meet your neighbors and faculty, relax, and learn something new about yourself or the world.

 Once again, welcome to the Townhouse Community and we look forward to meeting YOU in August!

Eco Tip

USE LESS H20!!! DROUGHT...On average, the university uses 1.8 million gallons of potable – clean, treated – water each day during the first month of the Fall semester. The university aims to reduce total campus water use by 30 percent (to 1.2 million gallons per day) to be able to sustain daily operations of the Ithaca campus for the duration of the current water use restriction period.
