Introduction to Architecture Housing & Expenses


Housing is available through Columbia University Resident Halls. Students interested in campus housing should complete the online application form on the Columbia University Summer Housing website http://housing.columbia.edu/summer-housing/visiting-summer-students/eligibility-and-options. Housing applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all bed space is filled. When inquiring about housing availability, please be sure to state that you are applying for the second summer session.

Please note that students must be admitted to the program before applying for housing, so applying early is recommended.

The cost of studying in New York City is chiefly affected by the individual student's budget. The cost of living in New York City, in general, is higher than that of other major American Cities.

In the Columbia University Morningside Heights neighborhood there are ample banks including Chase Manhattan, Washington Mutual, Banco Popular and Citibank. Students may opt to open a new bank account or use the ATM facilities to link their banks. Most of the restaurants and businesses in the neighborhood do not accept personal checks.

Students will be advised as to where to eat, shop, etc. during orientation. There are many good (and cheap!) restaurants in the Columbia University neighborhood as well as on campus.
