UAH Billing

University Apartment Housing Student Billing

NOW VIA STUDENT FINANCIAL SERVICES

• Historically, students who have accepted an offer for University Apartment Housing (UAH) were billed in one of two ways: a monthly lease via the Controller's Office or per semester via Student Financial Services (SFS)

• Beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, all new students who have accepted an offer for UAH will now be billed via a semester contract through SFS

• Returning students originally issued monthly leases through the Controller's Office have the option of continuing to be billed through the Controller's Office for the remainder of their enrollment at the University or to switch to a contract billed through SFS

• One of the benefits of billing through SFS is the monthly payment plan, which allows students to pay tuition and fees over several months rather than in one payment

  • UAH will cover the $45 annual enrollment fee for students who enroll in the monthly payment plan
  • Historically, the monthly payment plan has been available for only the Fall and Spring terms; SFS has agreed to add a payment plan for the Summer term
Other benefits of billings via SFS Contract include:
  • A $1,000 pre-payment credited against the first semester's bill instead of a full month's rent as a security deposit
  • Several payment options including online check, wire transfer and in-person
  • Ability to manage all University financial obligations in an accessible online account
• If you are aware of any other students who have concerns about this new process or any other billing issue, please contact UAH at uah@columbia.edu or 212-854-9300
