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

On-Campus Housing

Columbia Housing offers room packages in Carman Hall, a residence hall on the Morningside campus, for guests during Commencement Week. Please be aware that this is dormitory-style housing. Families may reserve either a half suite (two single twin XL beds and a shared bathroom with the adjacent room) or a full suite (two rooms with a total of four single twin XL beds and bathroom). A limit of two rooms (one full suite) may be reserved per graduate.

Commencement Housing applications are available in mid-February and will be accepted online on a first-come, first-served basis until all rooms are filled. Graduating students can also apply for rooms in person at 114 Harley Hall. Credit cards will be billed automatically upon application confirmation.

More information, including rates, application procedures, and cancellation policies, is available on the University Housing's Commencement website.

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.
