The Office of Housing Services works to make Columbia University Irving Medical Center feel like your home away from home. Each year, we house about 1,400 students, faculty, and postdoctoral research fellows in our on-campus dormitories and apartments.

Enrolled for spring 2019? Apply for housing November 1-30. Eligible full-time students who are currently not living on campus may apply for on-campus housing and move in during January 2019. Learn how to apply.
