Spacious, Modern, Supportive

As a Cornell student, you'll train in spacious, modern facilities and learn with state-of-the-art technology. Between classes or clinics, you can grab a snack from the cafe, meet friends in the atrium, or find a cozy spot to study in our peaceful library.

Takoda’s Run Atrium

Considered the "heart" of our college, the atrium is a place for students, faculty, and staff to share conversations, meals, and social events under the sprawling beauty of soaring ceilings. Naturally lit, wide-open spaces bring the outdoors inside, supporting community engagement and well-being.

Flower-Sprecher Veterinary Library

With a rich collection of instructional resources, large windows, and quiet spaces for study, the college's library is tailor-made to support student learning. And, when it's time for a study break, students can relax and unwind with puzzles, knitting baskets, novels, and a coffee/tea cart.



Managed by the award-winning Cornell Dining, the college's café serves affordable, freshly prepared, and healthy meals Mondays through Fridays. Students can dine inside or outside in the courtyard.
