What is Columbia Urban Experience (CUE)?

CUE participants spend the week with a team of three to five other participants and one leader, working at one of our service sites. They select their preferred site on the first day of the program, which they have already received descriptions of earlier in the summer. CUE-ers also engage in article-based discussions on critical and ethical perspectives of responsible service. Each evening, participants explore NYC with free night activities!

Are shuttle services offered from the NYC airports to campus? Can I get to campus by taking public transportation?

There are no shuttle services from campus, but cabs are readily available. Let your driver know you need to go to "Columbia University at 116th and Amsterdam."  If you are traveling from the Newark, JFK, or LaGuardia airports, it is possible to use a variety of buses and trains to get to the University. Be mindful that this route will take some time and may involve multiple modes of transportation.

Check-in will start at 8:00 a.m. and go until 12:00 p.m. All students, whether or not they live on campus, need to check in at the tent in front of Hamilton Hall.
