Household relocation funds will be given to eligible faculty hires as a taxable lump sum payment received in their first paycheck. The new hire can use household relocation funds to self-move or to hire a moving company as they see fit, with no expectations to save receipts. 

Lab/office moves are paid from startup funds and must be coordinated with the hiring department.

If the new faculty member would like support for moving, Cornell University has an agreement with Coldwell Banker Relocation Services for residential and/or lab/office moves. The contact is Diane Olsen, reloauthorizations [at]

Coldwell Banker Relocation Services (CBRS) also provides real estate services and information about the Ithaca area such as a free area tour in Ithaca/Geneva; contact can be initiated with the CBRS request form, available on the Division of Human Resources website.

To initiate an inquiry about laboratory moves with CBRS, please use the “notes” box on the CBRS request form to request information about the process, for which CBRS contracts with Relocation Management Resources. CBRS can be used for a residential relocation, a laboratory move, or both. 

Other Cornell approved moving companies which can be contacted for competitive pricing can be found on the Division of Financial Affairs website.
