Does Cornell offer tours of the Ithaca campus?
The Information and Referral Center offers guided walking tours of the campus throughout the year, except from late December through early January. The tours are an enjoyable and informative introduction to Cornell and its history, student life, and Cornell's combined roles as an undergraduate teaching institution, an international research university, and New York State's land-grant institution.
Walking tours begin at the Information and Referral Center in the Day Hall lobby; appointments are not required but you can get free tickets in the lobby. The tours are mostly outdoors; each lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes and includes information about Cornell's undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools and colleges. The tour routes are accessible to wheelchairs. Please advise the tour guide of any special needs, or call ahead. The Information and Referral Center can be reached at 607 254-INFO Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Eastern time).
