Welcome to Cornell's West Campus.

The West Campus House System offers upperlevel students an actively engaged community of their own - one that fosters personal discovery and growth, and nurtures scholarship and creativity in an environment of collegiality, civility, and responsible stewardship.  A product of years of planning by Cornell students, faculty, and staff, the West Campus House System emphasizes informal interaction with faculty members, self-governance, social and cultural programming, privacy, and independence.  What student residents on west campus will find - and help to build - is a natural extension of the experience they shared as first-year students on north campus. It is also a part of Cornell's vision to be the best research university for undergraduate education in this country.
