Columbia University Facilities is committed to enriching the lives of University students, faculty, and staff through the preservation of the Morningside campus' green spaces. These award-winning grounds are maintained by Facilities' Operations team.
You can learn more about the plants and trees, including perennials and red maples, on Morningside campus by taking part in our garden tour. Please feel free to conduct a self-guided tour or, if you have a large group, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will coordinate a group tour, pending availability.
Visitors are encouraged to explore the campus's gardens through a self-guided tour. Materials to assist in a self-guided tour include a list of plants on Morningside campus and Garden Tour Map and/or Disability Access Campus Map. For pre-arranged group tours, our Facilities experts in landscaping and grounds management will lead tours of the University's majestic gardens. Attendees will not be permitted to tour inside University buildings.
