Accommodations are provided for students whose disabilities substantially limit their ability to live in Columbia’s traditional housing arrangements. Students must follow the University’s Disability Housing Accommodations Procedures & Guidelines available with the Disability Housing Accommodations Registration Form.
Residential Life employs nearly 146 students as Resident Advisers (RAs) and Community Advisers (CAs). RA assignments are made by Residential Life. Resident Advisers are guaranteed housing for the academic year and in most buildings, can choose one other person to live with them. These residents are known as RA Riders.
