Domestic-Partner or Same-Sex Marriage Benefits

Cornell’s generous benefits include coverage for spouses and domestic partners. When you get married or gain a domestic partner—or your spouse or partner’s job status (i.e., lost or gained employment) has changed—you can add or make changes to your benefits coverage.

Additional Information

New York state, generally, and Ithaca, NY, specifically, have a welcoming LGBT and LGBT-friendly community. We have successfully enrolled transgender students. We are expanding our unisex facilities from one to three.

The overall climate for our LGBT students is a welcoming one where students thrive. Our entering class boasted the largest recorded number of LGBT students. Applicants are encouraged to address their sexual orientation/identity in their Personal and/or Diversity statements.
