Facts about Cornell


Where can I get information about Cornell Ithaca-campus mailing addresses?

If you know the name of a Cornell Ithaca-campus unit (a department, office, program, laboratory, college, school, etc.) and the name (and room number) of the building it is in or the street address, address your USPS mail to:

Cornell University
[Unit Name]
[Building Name, including room number, or Street Address, if known]
Ithaca, NY 14853

The 14853 zip code is exclusive to Cornell Ithaca-campus buildings (although a few Cornell buildings or street addresses on or adjacent to the Ithaca campus are assigned the general Ithaca zip code of 14850). The words Cornell University are not necessary in addresses that have the 14853 zip code, but if you do use them, do NOT place them just above the Ithaca, NY 14853 line; instead, place the building name and room number, or street address, there (most 14853 Cornell addresses use building names, not street addresses).

The United States Postal Service encourages the use of + 4 codes along with the 14853 Cornell zip code. You can try your luck at getting a + 4 code for a Cornell 14853 address on this USPS web site: http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/company_zip.htm.

If you do not know the exact name of the Cornell unit or any specific building or street address information, you can try the Cornell Mail Services web site listed above, or search for that information via the Cornell home page: http://www.cornell.edu/, or request assistance from:
