Lease Signing and Moving In

This is to confirm that you will be signing a New York City/Columbia University Lease with CUMC Office of Housing Services Leasing Agent.

You should direct any additional questions to the Leasing Agent at 212-304-7267.


At lease signing you will be required to submit two (2) checks which reflects payment for the first month’s rent and security which equals one month's rent. This payment will show as a credit on the first bill you receive from the University Controller’s Office. All payments can only be made by you –“the Tenant of Record”.


Leases are generated on the 1st and 15th of each month. Students leases expire on May 31 of each year and are automatically extended for another year provided that you maintain full-time student status, are in good financial standing and have maintained all terms and conditions of the lease.


After lease signing you will be given your apartment keys. Billing for your apartment will begin on that date. Once you have received your keys, you can report to your building and move-in.
