Students with photo ID can pick up their packages from the mail room. The mail room does not deliver packages to the residence halls. Due to the high volume of packages delivered at the beginning of the semester, there may be a wait of more than a week to access your shipment(s). Please plan to bring with you or to purchase locally anything you'll need in the first 1-2 weeks.
There are many places near campus where you can purchase toiletries and other supplies for your room. We also offer a free shuttle bus to and from Bed Bath & Beyond during NSOP! You can ship packages to your school address starting two weeks before orientation.
The Global Ambassador Program (GAP) is a new international friendship program that aims to foster intercultural dialogues among Columbia's diverse student body, as well as connect students from different social identities, cultural backgrounds, and class years.
