When to Visit
Access to the house is limited to members and their invited guests. We therefore strongly recommend contacting the High Alpha prior to any visit, to ensure someone is available to greet you. For the major alumni weekends, please see the pages for Reunion Weekend and Homecoming.
The house is occupied year-round, but check the Cornell Academic Calendar for break and exam periods, and in the wintertime, be sure to check the weather forecast and University Operating Status as well.
Driving Directions and Parking
The Visiting Cornell page provides general links to maps, directions, and parking information at Cornell.
Very limited metered parking is available on the street. On evenings and weekends, parking is permitted in the university lots across the street and up the street. Please note that the house parking lot is full, and the drive must be kept clear for deliveries and in case of emergency— no guest parking is available at the house.
