  • +What can I expect from Cornish Commons staff on move-in day?

    You may not be able to see it from behind our face coverings, but you can expect smiles, excitement, and diligence! Our team will be here to answer questions, chat about life, and work endlessly to provide you and your move-in helper with a great move-in day experience.
  • +Do we need to wear face coverings during move-in day?

    Yes! Please plan for you and any move-in helper to wear a face covering for the duration of the time spent outside of your residential room, both on move-in day and throughout the year. Currently, we require that all face masks within the building are Surgical or N95-grade face masks.
  • +How is Cornish Commons reacting to COVID-19?

    We're not just being reactive, we're being proactive about the health and safety of our community. For example, we have reworked our move-in process so we can avoid risky crowding! You can learn more about what we're doing on our COVID-19 Protocols page.
  • +Can my family or friends help me move into my room?

    Currently, our plan is to allow one move-in helper to accompany you into Cornish Commons and up to your room.
  • +Can my family or friends stay with me overnight after I’m moved in?

    In accordance with public health and higher education guidelines, Cornish Commons will maintain restricted guest access throughout the course of the semester. After your move-in is complete, your move-in helper will need to depart Cornish Commons.
  • +What do I bring to Cornish Commons?

    You can find a complete list of what you should consider bringing for your room in Cornish Commons on our What to Bring page. If you have any questions or are unsure of a specific item, please refer to the housing contract or email us at housing@cornish.edu.
  • +When will I know my mailbox assignment?

    Mailbox assignments and your mailing address for the academic year will be available in mid-August.

    We will not hold packages in advance, and you are not able to ship anything for your room to the College ahead of time. Please plan accordingly and look into shipping and storage solutions in the area if necessary.
  • +What if I don't know or want to change my meal plan?

    If you are unsure about what meal plan you selected, you can view your student account invoice for the fall and it will indicate which plan you have. If you would like to make a change to your meal plan, please contact housing@cornish.edu.
  • +What if I have a concern about my assigned room or roommate?

    If you have a concern with your room assignment or roommate, please contact our office at housing@cornish.edu. We will do our best to accommodate your request. Please know we will be accepting these requests, but will not be able to finalize changes until the first week of August. This is because we have a lot of changes that occur during this time.
  • +Where can I get additional information?

    Remember, more details will be issued in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. In the meantime, you can check out these other, supporting resources:

    Follow our social media: we're on Instagram!

    Keep an eye on your email, because we will be sending you room confirmation, important updates, and anything else you need to know.
