About Me
Several grad students and post docs and visiting faculty have rented a room from me over the past few years. I have enjoyed getting to know them -- mostly people from other countries. It's important to be comfortable with the questions of privacy and community when living so closely. I have two grown children, a friendly goldfish, and an aloof cat. I teach full time, but will be working at home (writing a book) as well. During this time of pandemic, I am not renting the room. If things clear up by February 2021, it will be available again.

I stayed at the listed accommodation for a couple months during the summer when I was between leases, and had a lovely experience. The space is quiet, comfortable, and offers a lot of privacy. I do not drive, but found it easy to get to campus by bus or a brisk 15-20min walk. The surroundings are absolutely gorgeous, and the folks at the housing could not be nicer!

I spend four months at this accommodation while I was visiting Cornell University. My overall evaluation is excellent. The main advantage of this listing is the location: a walk to campus takes around 20 minutes, and there is a bus stop in front of the house. The neighborhood and the other household members are quiet which makes it a suitable location for a working visit. If you are an academic who is planning to visit Cornell University for the duration of one or two semesters, then you do not have to look further! Excellent Victor 12/20/2016 6:53:00 AM
