Towers I, II, III

Built in 1971, Towers I, II, and III are a landmark feature of the Columbia University Medical Center skyline, rising 30 stories above the rocky cliffs over the Hudson River. Tower I conveniently connects to Bard Hall, which houses the athletic center and ballroom where the student meal plan is served. Towers II and III share a courtyard with the Vagelos Education Center, a verdant area with stunning views of the river, George Washington Bridge, and the Palisades. The Towers provide spacious two-, three-, and four-person suites for single students and junior one-bedrooms and one-bedroom apartments for couples. Consider joining the Towers community through the Bard to Towers Lottery, perfect for friends to share space, or through a Couples Application.


Notice: In June 2017, Columbia University Medical Center will begin the Towers Modernization Project, a multi-year residential improvement project designed to enhance spaces throughout Towers 1, 2, and 3. Learn more about the Towers Modernization Project.
