Your Resident Advisors

Resident advisors are available to assist you with all aspects associated with living in Columbia University Irving Medical Center on-campus housing.

Our RAs can help you with:

  • Emergency issues during non-business hours and on weekends
  • Lock-outs. You must be a tenant of record or an assigned student to be granted access to your unit if you get locked out. You'll need to show proper identification. Charges and fees may apply.
  • Interpersonal issues that may arise with other residents
  • Access to other available CUIMC resources

For urgent after-hours maintenance requests, you can also contact your RA, who can contact the on-call facilities staff on your behalf.

To reach the RA on duty, call Public Safety at (212) 305-8100. In an emergency, dial 911.
