Become part of our vibrant community.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hall is part of Cornell's First-Year Experience, and will house first-year students.
Ginsburg Hall is named in honor of Cornell 1954 graduate, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Through creative floor plans, Ginsburg Hall provides living spaces with a modern aesthetic that enhances the residential experience and encourages interaction and collaboration among students. Ginsburg Hall aims to draw students out of their individual rooms and into ample common areas that support group study, social interaction, and programs in spacious lounges and nearby cafés. Ginsburg Hall's Residence Hall Director, Faculty-in-Residence member, and Resident Advisors will host programs and activities for all interests that help students meet new friends and make connections to the university community.
