Atkinson Hall

Atkinson Hall east side


Atkinson Hall, a new building of approximately 104,000 GSF, will house and support the growth of the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability,  the Department of Computational Biology, the Center for Cancer Biology and the Center for Immunology, and provide a hub to support the campus-wide Masters of Public Health program. Each of these programs are university-wide in scope and drive interdisciplinary programs. The building will be an embodiment of "One Cornell", providing essential support to research and other activities across campus boundaries.
