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.

Students with Activated UNI

All students who already have an active UNI can login by clicking here.

You will not be able to apply for Academic Year 2020-2021 in this Portal if you are one of the following:

  • Guest applying for summer conference housing
  • Summer Visiting students
  • American Language Program (ALP)

For questions, please contact housing@columbia.edu.

Please note that Columbia Housing only accepts applications from undergraduates in Columbia College and the Fu Foundation School of Engineering of Applied Science. Graduate students and students enrolled in the School of General Studies should contact Columbia Residential for housing information.
