COVID-19 Update: Building Access on Morningside Campus

March 20, 2020
ID Card Readers

Due to COVID-19, only essential personnel are required to be physically present on campus. Earlier this week, all academic and administrative buildings on the Morningside campus with card-reader-only access were set to weekend access.

This means that you will only be able to access these buildings if your Columbia University ID (CUID) would give you access on a typical weekend. If you are on campus, be sure to carry your CUID with you at all times.

Visit the ID Card Access page or email if you have any questions or issues regarding building access.

For more information regarding the University's response to COVID-19, visit or call Columbia’s COVID-19 hotline at 212-854-9355 (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
