Summer at Cornell is a vibrant experience. Professional conferences, youth programs and summer camps, and summer academic students blend in a mix of learning and campus experiences.

Summer kicks off on-campus with Commencement Housing, followed by Reunion and the arrival of undergraduate research programs. Summer session students follow along with youth camps and professional conferences.


We are your exclusive provider for summer meal plan coordination and on-campus housing.

We can assist with as many additional planning services as you would like, from simply a meal plan package, to full conference packages including housing, dining, local excursions, and recreational activities.

Additionally, programs that include unaccompanied individuals under the age of 18 and also have an on-campus overnight housing component must work with Conference and Event Services (CES) in conjunction with CYS. A signed contract with CES must be submitted as part of the CYS registration process.
