Additional helpful campus tour resources:

  • Red balloons: Look for these to spot the best entrances to select buildings.
  • Boards with QR codes: Scan QR codes on the boards outside buildings for a virtual tour description.
  • Campus Visit Guide: Consult the “Feel the Spirit” booklet in your welcome folder for building details.

Residence Hall Room Set-up

  • Corey Union, Exhibition Lounge
  • Old Main, Brown Auditorium

Two different locations allow visitors to check out residence hall room dimensions and the set-up of campus living spaces. Off-campus visitors are not permitted to enter residence halls due to COVID-19 safety precautions. Visit cortland.edu/reslife to see additional photos or walking tour videos of select buildings.
