Welcome to Your New Home
Starting your life in a residential community is a momentous milestone and the details of how to do so safely are a top priority. Columbia Housing will be your main resource for housing details but below are some preliminary dates you can use for planning your travel to campus.
IMPORTANT: For information specific to your check-in and campus quarantine protocol, or for logistics and amenities, please see Living on Campus.
The Class of 2025 will hear more about their New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) experience in June through the Countdown to Columbia series. The general move-in for NSOP will take place on Sunday, August 29. Student-athletes may move in on different days, which will be communicated by Columbia Athletics.
Transfer, Visiting and Combined Plan Students
Students who are joining us as transfer, visiting or combined plan students this year will be invited to move in Tuesday, August 31 and begin their orientation programming.
