Housing and Dining

The Summer School will be located in Ithaca, New York, on the Cornell University campus. All Summer School activities and classes will be held in section of Cornell known as "North Campus".

Child Care

This year because of limited resources and a lack of child care providers on campus, we regretfully cannot offer childcare.
