Morningside Campus Access Updates

Updated May 22, 2024

Affiliate Access

All Columbia-based affiliates from all campuses, including Morningside, Manhattanville, CUIMC, Baker Athletics Complex, Lamont, and Nevis have access to the Morningside campus. In addition, members of Dodge Fitness Center have access to campus. Affiliates will also have access to all campus buildings, consistent with normal operating hours, including but not limited to IAB, the Law School, Mudd and Lerner. A valid Columbia University ID is required to access the Morningside campus. Restricted access remains in effect for affiliates of Barnard and Teachers College as well as anyone without a valid CUID.

Morningside Researchers

We understand that the CUID-only access restrictions may pose a burden, particularly when it comes to having visitors for research purposes on campus. We are actively working to address this concern and will provide further updates as soon as possible.  Click here for more information on campus access for researchers. 

Access Points to Campus

Campus can be accessed at College Walk at Amsterdam and 116th Street, the Earl Hall Gate at 117th Street and Broadway, and the Wien Gate on 116th Street. These gates will be accessible 24/7 to Columbia affiliates with a valid CUID. All other campus entry points are closed.

Our top priority remains the safety and well-being of our community members, while also ensuring the continuity of our academic mission; adherence to university rules and policies is critical to realizing those goals. We are grateful for your understanding as we work towards a prompt return to regular operations.
