Worst dorms at Cornell?


Verified Student

Schuyler House is the worst because of how far it is and the buses are inconsistent. Would definitely not recommend it because it's too far from campus.

The Gothics are some of the worst dorms because they are rundown and pretty old. Some of the layouts are weird.

About Cornell Housing

Cornell dorms are different based on the building. Most have a suite-style dorm set-up. First-year students are required to live on North Campus and aren’t able to pick their dorm room unless they apply to a program house. This is done to create a sense of community among the first years. Second-year students are also required to live on campus but are able to choose between North Campus, West Campus, and South Campus. This offers a wider choice of dorm room experience. Most upperclassmen live off campus but those who choose to remain on campus may apply to live in program houses, co-op houses, or live in certain buildings with allocated spaces for upperclassmen. Program houses are open for all, from first-years through seniors.
