What is Urban New York?
Urban New York provides an opportunity for students in Columbia College, Columbia Engineering and Barnard College to experience the cultural, artistic and unique world that New York City has to offer, to connect with faculty and staff outside of the classroom, and to make connections across our larger community, meeting students from across both campuses during a night of fun and entertainment.
Three lotteries are held during the academic year: one in the fall semester and two in the spring semester. The first lottery is in the fall and is open to first-year, transfer, visiting, and combined plan NEW undergraduate students. In the spring, a General Lottery is held, open to all undergraduate class years, and a Senior Lottery open to seniors in Columbia College and the School of Engineering only. Each event will provide tickets for up to 20 winners and will have a trip leader and an accompanying faculty or staff representative.
