Residents with Financial Holds

Columbia Housing is notified regularly by Student Financial Services (SFS) of any residents that have a financial hold on their student account. Residents with a financial hold will not be permitted to move into their Housing assignment and may be subject to cancellation if the hold is not resolved prior to the check-in date. Residents who have a financial hold during the Academic Year might lose access to their residence hall and room.  

To contact SFS with any questions regarding your account, please email sfs@columbia.edu or visit the Student Service Center Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For inquiries specific to Housing, email housing@columbia.edu.
