There are a variety of options for accommodations during Commencement Week. Several off-campus options are detailed below.

On-Campus Housing

Due to construction, Columbia Housing will not be able to house Commencement guests in residence halls for Spring 2018 and Spring 2019. Please visit the University GradZone website for a list of accommodations for families and guests.

Off-Campus Housing

Discounted rates may be available to Columbia University students and guests at some local hotels upon inquiry. Neighborhood hotels do fill up well in advance, so it is recommended that you make your reservation as soon as possible. If neighborhood hotels become booked, there are many other hotels in New York City, many of which are only a short subway ride from the University.
