The High Rise Community
The High Rises are two residential buildings that join together to create one community. George Jameson Hall and High Rise 5 are first-year halls on the North Campus of Cornell University. Opening their doors in 1974, the High Rises are a close-knit community with proud traditions.
We're looking forward to Move-in and the start of the new academic year. To help make the Move-in process go well for you, we need your help with two things.
First, if you have not submitted your photo yet for your Cornell ID, it's super easy and only takes two minutes. What's stopping you? Don't wait, the form is closing at noon August 9. Thought you already submitted a photo? Please check your to do list to confirm. Please reach out to the Registrar's Office if you think there's an error, have, or need assistance submitting your photo. It's very important to complete this task before your arrival for a smooth check-in. Your Cornell ID is not only used for access into your residential hall, it's also a bus pass, used to access Dining halls, fitness centers, libraries, and academic buildings.
Second, if you have not secured a Move-in time-slot, please do so through the Housing Portal. You can also change your timeslot if your Move-in plans have changed. We use the timeslot information to help with traffic planning, ensuring we have enough staff support, and for other planning to make sure you have the best Move-in experience possible.
Thanks for helping us make your Move-in as positive one.
