"Since 1969, Habitat for Humanity has built, rehabilitated, and repaired over 800,000 homes."



Cornell Habitat is a student-led, student-run organization that prides itself on accomplishing the four functions of a Habitat campus chapter: To build, fundraise, educate and advocate. Each and every weekend we are building and rehabilitating houses in partnership with local Habitat affiliates and homeowners. We host a variety of events and fundraisers throughout the year in order to help us support the work of Habitat.




Cornell Habitat for Humanity aims to help build affordable, decent housing for socioeconomically constrained families in Tompkins County.



  • Service trips around the country, most recently building homes in Georgia and West Virginia

  • Fundraising on campus, selling everyone's favorite Krispy Kreme donuts and more
  • Building roof trusses on Ho Plaza for homes in Tompkins County during our annual Truss Days event in May

  • Work trips on Saturday mornings throughout the year, assisting with local home construction

We build because we believe that everyone, everywhere, should have a healthy, affordable place to call home.
