House Office

As the communication hub for the House community, the House Office is your first stop for assistance. It is much more than a place to pick up your mail and drop off out-going letters.  The House Office is where you can learn about and sign up for events happening in the House, borrow games, kitchenware, Wii equipment and DVDs, and troubleshoot facilities issues that might come up. In addition, at the House Office you can get assistance if you are locked out of your room or have misplaced your keys or ID card.

Don't be shy about stopping by to ask questions, and if you are especially friendly, organized, and responsible talk to a current Office Assistant about how you can apply to work in the office too!

Mail
Monday through Saturday USPS mail is delivered, typically in the late afternoon. Your address is your room number followed by "Carl Becker House, Ithaca, NY 14853".
