Special Interest Community Recruitment

Special Interest Communities (SICs) offer a unique residential experience by allowing sophomores, juniors, and seniors to live and explore common interests together. This living arrangement also creates opportunities for students to connect with faculty, administrators, alumni, and community leaders.

It truly is a very unique opportunity at Columbia University, and we would love for you to be a part of that experience. 

While the deadline has passed, there is still an opportunity to join the Special Interest Community Waitlist.

If you are interested in becoming a member of a Special Interest Community please apply here: Special Interest Community Application.

Thank you for your interest, and please direct any questions to Nathan Johnson, Associate Director for Special Interest Communities and faculty initiatives.
