What is Urban New York?

Urban New York (UNY), is a collaborative program between Columbia College(CC), The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and Barnard College (BC)  in which undergraduate students can enter a lottery to win FREE tickets to attend a variety of events around New York City – past events have included Broadway shows, tourist attractions, sporting events, group dinners, operas, dance performances, interactive tours, comedy shows, poetry nights, and more!  UNY offers 3 lotteries a year - one in the fall and two in the spring. The First-year Fall Lottery is open to all first-year students in CC/SEAS and BC. In the spring, there is a General Lottery open to all undergraduates in CC/SEAS and BC students, and a Senior Lottery which is open to CC/SEAS graduating senior students.  Each trip has up to 20 winners and is led by a Trip Leader with a faculty or staff representative in attendance.

Visty the Rules and Regulations page for more information about the lottery and how to register.   For questions or more information please contact urbanny@columbia.edu.

Urban New York Program Goals

  1. Provide opportunities for CC/SEAS and BC students to experience the cultural, artistic, and unique world New York City has to offer. 

  2. Create a space and opportunity for CC/SEAS and BC students to connect with Faculty and Staff outside of the classroom.

  3. Foster new relationships and strengthen existing ones by bringing students together from across campuses to build community during a night fun and unique entertainment.
