Riley-Robb Hall

Cornell University is nestled in the small city of Ithaca, in central New York.  Ithaca is one hour south of Syracuse, two and a half hours east of Buffalo and five hours north-west of New York City.  The summer is full of outdoor activities with nearby gorges and parks but the winters can be cold, so bring something warm to wear if you visit during that time.

Click here for a searchable map of the campus from Cornell's main web site.  Riley-Robb Hall is near the bottom right-hand corner of the map.
