Residential Branches

Telluride Association owns two houses (the “Branches”) – one in Ithaca, NY and one in Ann Arbor, MI.


Built in 1910, Telluride House in Ithaca (also known as the Cornell Branch, or CBTA) initially provided room and board for electrical engineers who had worked for L.L. Nunn and who were attending Cornell University. In 2000, a second Branch was chartered at the University of Michigan (called MBTA).

Both of these Branches provide an unusually rich and intense academic experience and provide students with opportunities far beyond those of a standard university education.
