Visiting Columbia

Directions to Columbia University

Columbia University in the City of New York is located in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of the Upper West Side of Manhattan. For driving and transit directions, including airport connections, please use our Visiting Campus website. Street parking is extremely limited and garages can be expensive, so we recommend utilizing public transit when possible.

Hotels and Accommodations

There are a number of hotels in the area, some of which may offer Columbia University rates. In addition, a great way to explore New York City is to stay in a new neighborhood.  We recommend using Columbia Housing Alternative Accommodations, the Columbia Travel Portal, and Columbia Admissions Accommodations as starting places for your hotel search. Additionally, NYCGO is the Official Guide to New York City and can help you to plan your visit.
