Information for Visitors
Campus visitors must abide by Cornell’s travel and visitor policy which significantly restricts visits by individuals not part of the residential Cornell community, at least through the fall semester. Campus visitors are prohibited from entering any campus facility, including residence halls. Only approved current students, staff or faculty, essential vendors (such as food and delivery workers or construction and service providers), or individuals approved, in writing, by the provost or appropriate dean, vice president or their delegate, may access campus facilities.
Walking around Cornell’s campus is permitted. However, all employees, students and visitors are required to have a mask on their person when outdoors on campus and to put on their face covering or mask when it is NOT feasible to maintain physical distancing measures (i.e., at least six feet of separation between others).
We will provide an update when the campus resumes normal operations, including on-campus information sessions and additional admissions events. Please navigate to our Virtual Visit site to learn more about Cornell, in the meantime.
The Cornell University Undergraduate Admissions Office, located at 410 Thurston Avenue, is also currently closed to visitors for an unknown period of time. We will provide an update regarding when the office will reopen to visitors as soon as we can. We encourage you to stay connected with us. You may still reach and engage admissions office staff, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone at 607-255-5241. We also invite you to use MeetEzra, our searchable database of frequently asked questions (and answers).
