Columbia University Apartments for Rent

About the University and City

Founded in 1754, Columbia University is a private Ivy League research university located in New York City. One of the country's nine colonial colleges, Columbia is the oldest education institution in the state of New York and the fifth oldest in the country. Currently boasting a student population of around 28,000 students, Columbia's most notable alumni include Barack Obama, Warren Buffett and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The campus is located in the neighborhood of Morningside Heights located around 116th Street between Morningside Park and Riverside Park. It stretches from 110th Street all the way to 121st Street. Located by Columbia University on Broadway between 116th and 120th Street is Barnard College, a private women's liberal arts college affiliated with Columbia University since 1900. The closest subway stop by Columbia University is the 116th Street 1 train Station.

Where are the academic buildings?

Today, most of Columbia's and Barnard's graduate and undergraduate departments are located on the main campus in Morningside Heights. The main part of campus occupies over six city blocks for a total of 299 acres. Most Columbia students walk or bike to classes.

Where are the residence halls?

Columbia Housing's 22 residences are made up of traditional residence halls, apartment buildings and brownstones. While all housing is located on campus, Columbia divides up these residences into four distinct locations located at: South Lawn, East Campus, West Campus, and the Block. Barnard College, affiliated and located by Columbia University, currently has 12 residence halls located on their own campus.

While students from each school have the option to live in other's dorms, the number of Barnard students allowed to live in Columbia housing and vice versa is limited. Barnard students are granted access to all Columbia residence halls, while Columbia students are granted access only to their own residence halls.

Where do students live other than dorms?

If you don't plan on living in the Residence Halls provided by Columbia University or Barnard College, don't feel like you're missing out! All students who choose to live off campus are packaged as a "commuter" student regardless of where they live. Generally most commuter students continue to live close by to campus by staying around the Upper West Side, Central & West Harlem or in Morningside Heights.

Regardless of where you choose to live, transportation is rarely an issue. Besides from the public transportation options located within New York City, students are also able to gain access to a free Columbia Intercampus Shuttle Bus. However, due to the close range of most of the academic buildings, most Columbia and Barnard students can walk or bike to class.

Columbia has real-time shuttle bus locations and routes information located on their site.

Where do alums live if they stay in the city?

For alums who continue staying in the city, most are spread throughout Manhattan and northwest of Flatbush, Brooklyn. Some popular neighborhoods for alums include Hell's Kitchen, Financial District, Upper West/East Side and Harlem. There are currently around 106,200 Columbia University alumni living within the state of New York.

While most of Columbia University's 320,000 alums are currently living within North America, over 35,700 of those alums can be found living in another foreign country.
