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).
