Incoming New Students

Incoming new students must first create a new password for the Housing Portal.

  • If you have not already done so, please create your password using your Columbia ID ("PID") (as the username), which is the number beginning with "C00..." found at the top of your admissions application status page and click 'Submit.' This will generate an email that contains further instructions. This is a one time process to setup your Housing Portal access.

  • Once you have setup your password, click here to login.
