The MVR renovations require approximately 200 people to relocate to temporary office and research space. Information on this page is intended to assist faculty and staff during the move (surge), while they adjust to working in new spaces on campus, and in maintaining the College's vital and supportive community.

Martha's Cafe has relocated to the MVR West Addition Foyer (just off the MVR Commons) and been modified to Martha's Express, offering a changed menu, this page also includes a quick link to Cornell Dining Services for more options. Please note: The Big Red Barn has expanded its sandwich menu to accommodate changes to Martha's Cafe during construction. Check out online ordering options at the Dining Services website.

You will also find a quick link to the Cornell Transportation website for information about parking and transportation around campus. And information about spaces in MVR for meeting, collaborating and studying will assist you in finding spaces for these activities in MVR.

If you have questions, concerns or suggestions about resources and/or maintaining the College of Human Ecology Community during the MVR renovations, please share them. One way to do that is by sending a message to CHE-Renovation@cornell.edu.
