TRANSFERRING TO A DIFFERENT ROOM OR APARTMENT

We expect that your student housing will be suitable for the duration of your studies at Columbia. However, should you want to transfer to another apartment or room, you may submit a transfer request via MY HOUSING PORTAL.

Please see Eligibility Information for ALL Transfer Applicants.

If you have questions please contact us at 212-854-9312 or send an email to uah-transfers@columbia.edu. 
PLEASE NOTE: Hundreds of requests are received each term and it is not possible to accommodate all. Requests are generally approved based on the availability of housing. Other factors include the reasons for the request, the length of time in housing, and housing eligibility.
