The Center for Jewish Living Residence, commonly referred to as "The House," is a beautiful 1890's building, resplendent with hardwood floors, oak, and stained glass windows. The House has twenty-one large single and double rooms available for rent by upperclassmen. Our spacious facilities include a library with many rare and contemporary Jewish books, a baby grand piano, and a recreation room with a HDTV Television and video game systems.
Living in the CJL is a far different experience than living in just another campus residence hall. The CJL house is what every Jewish community should be like-- a tolerant environment with students of every observance level who respect one another and treat each other like family.
No matter where you need to go on campus, know that it's bound to be close to the CJL. The CJL is less than 5 minutes away from the Arts Quad and the Engineering Quad. We're also a 3 minute walk to Noyes Community Center, which hosts Cornell's newest gym, as well as a convenience store which sells kosher food. And, a Cornell Dining Hall (104 West!) is right next door!
The CJL offers spacious rooms, extra-long beds, and fast internet connections, both wireless and wired. There's also no need to pay for cable- it's free, unlike in Cornell-run dorms. The CJL has two sets of laundry machines to be used free of charge by residents. There is also a widescreen HDTV in the basement for watching DVDs and TV, as well as playing videogames.
