Does Cornell University require its freshmen to live on campus?
On the website it says that housing is guaranteed for freshmen if they submit the documents before the due date, but does that mean that freshmen are allowed to live off-campus if they decide to due so?

    Yes. All freshmen will live on campus. My Daughter just finished her first year.

    Hopefully living on campus is something you desire and see as a positive. It's a great way to meet and engage many other freshmen (you're all going through a big transition at the same time), form bonds, and get involved with groups on campus. It's just easier as everything is right there. Many schools require it for those reasons.

    They used to make it mandatory, but my understanding is that is not the case anymore. Call housing to know for sure. Way cheaper to be off campus, but it's good for the social aspect of getting to know people to be in a dorm. Plus there is a bit more "control" of the environment in a dorm with it being locked and an RA available vs on your own in an apartment. Plus realize in Ithaca, ALL leases are typically 12 months, so even if your student is gone for the semester break / summer you will owe that rent cost, so it does kinda equal out the dorm pricing

    @Dyson90 -- Collegetown rents are quite high. Savings could be realized by buying groceries instead of being on the meal plan, but a student would have to hike up a few big hills in order to realize savings on housing.
