Housing Options

Single first-year students in WCM housing reside in Olin Hall, which is across the street from our main campus.

While a handful of students choose to remain in Olin Hall after their first years, the majority move to other Weill Cornell buildings to take advantage of a range of room styles and price points. Housing reassignments are typically determined by a lottery, which takes place in the spring of every academic year.

Family housing is not guaranteed, but we do our best to accommodate incoming married couples, domestic partners, and families at Lasdon House, 77th Street, and starting this summer, The House at Cornell Tech.

Olin Hall is home to medical and graduate students.
