What's New in the Tower

Starting on July 3, 2023: The tower will be under construction and will be receiving some tender loving care! However, do not worry, as the chimes will still be ringing throughout campus (on a modified and limited schedule).

The tower is currently an active construction zone, and is closed to the Cornell community and the public. Please visit the library space projects website for information on the construction project. We will plan a re-opening celebration once construction ends and the tower is accessible! 


Housed in historic McGraw Tower, the 21-bells are played primarily by student chimesmasters. Check the concert schedule for complete concert and special event information.
