We make every effort to ensure your transition to life at Columbia is as simple and enjoyable as possible. We have found that transfer students often prefer to be housed near other transfer students, so we accommodate those requests whenever possible.
You may also state your preference for a specific hall and for a single or double room, but please note that all transfer students are housed with their class in upperclass residence halls (visit specific residence hall page for details and rate information). Assignment is based on seniority and building preference with applications processed on a rolling basis. When a room has been assigned to you, we will notify you by email.
Transfer Student Application is now available.
3-2 Combined Plan (SEAS)
If you are transferring to Columbia as part of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science's 3-2 Combined Plan, please see the SEAS Combined Plan website for information about housing.
