Becker House

Welcome to Carl Becker House

Carl Becker House, which opened in August 2005, is the second of five houses that will accommodate undergraduate residents on Cornell University's West Campus.

The house is part of the residential initiative at Cornell University and was named in honor of Cornell faculty member Carl L. Becker (1873-1945).


This Week at Carl Becker House

West Campus House System Mission: A community of students and faculty gathered in a spirit of inquiry and active citizenship.

West Campus House System Program Goals:

  • Develop a sense of belonging to one's House.
  • Create safe, healthy, and welcoming communities.
  • Build meaningful relationships between residents and faculty.
  • Create opportunities for intellectual exploration that lead to a deeper understanding of one's discipline, exposure to a broad range of knowledge, and a desire to be a lifelong learner.
  • Encourage student engagement in the House System and provide opportunities for the development of student leadership skills.
  • Provide opportunities for students to engage as citizens in the broader community.
  • Help students navigate the opportunities available to them at Cornell.
