Campus Visit

Both the subway and the M60 Bus from LaGuardia Airport stop at 116th Street and Broadway, right at the main gates of the Columbia campus.The Columbia University Visitors Center offers information sessions and campus tours, class visits, and provides maps and directions to and around campus.

As a result of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation, Columbia Undergraduate Admissions Office and the Columbia University Visitors Center have suspended on-campus events  at this time for the safety and well-being of our entire Columbia community and campus visitors. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to campus once it is safe to do so. 

Register for a Virtual Information Session

Once we are able to resume our on-campus programming, we will offer registration links to information sessions and tours on this page. In the meantime, we encourage you to utilize our virtual tour to experience Columbia’s campus.

Information for Campus Visitors

All information sessions and tours begin in the Visitors Center, located in Room 213 of Low Memorial Library. Please review the map of campus to help you navigate your visit. Reservations for information sessions and campus tours are required for all visitors, including groups over 10. If your plans have changed, you do not need to formally cancel your reservation. Please note: there are certain dates that will be closed once room capacity is reached. For those dates, drop-ins will not be permitted.

Due to University security guidelines, the Visitors Center and Admissions Office at Columbia will not be able to store your luggage during your visit. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask you to plan accordingly.
