The Office of Housing Services works to make Columbia University 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.

Student Housing

Housing is available for full-time CUMC students, with accommodations for singles and couples. If you're a new student, browse our residences and campus map to see how close to campus you can live, then review the housing process for incoming students. We also have a variety of housing options for current students.

Postdoctoral Housing

Through a monthly lottery, we offer on-campus housing at both CUMC and the Morningside campus to full-time postdoctoral research fellows and full-time postdoctoral research scientists.

Review Your Eligibility and Apply for Postdoctoral Housing

Faculty Housing

If you are a full-time faculty member, we'll work with you to arrange for on-campus accommodations or help you navigate off-campus housing.
