The Facility

The Campus Center, a facility of 120,000 square feet, serves as an active, safe, and inclusive campus community center for a mostly residential campus of approximately 6000 students.

The Campus Center serves all members of the campus - faculty, staff, students, administrators, alumni and guests.  It is the heart of the Ithaca College campus, enhancing the student experience and promoting student success. 

The Campus Center is a catalyst for campus engagement through the support of co-curricular activities and the encouragement of interaction among all members of the IC community.  

Building History

Ithaca College's original Campus Center was the fourth building constructed on the South Hill campus.  The building opened in 1965 and was named Egbert Union, in honor of the college's first president.

The building was renovated in 1987, and Phillips Hall was added to the facility.  At this time, it was officially dedicated as the Campus Center.

Today, the Campus Center provides many of the services, conveniences, and amenities members of the college community need in their daily lives on campus.
