Morningside Garages
Full-time Columbia faculty and administrators Grade 14 and above who live between West 96th Street and West 145th Street from Central Park West to Riverside Drive are potentially eligible for University 24-hour parking. Full-time Columbia faculty and administrators Grade 14 and above who live outside of Manhattan are potentially eligible for University commuter parking.

For charging of ongoing (not daily) employee parking to a University department, please use the form below.  Please note that any such payment is reported to the Office of the Controller for review and determination whether it constitutes a taxable benefit under IRS regulations; please see IRS Publication 15-B for more information.

Authorization to Charge Employee Parking to a University Account (not for daily parking)

Daily Parking

The Engineering Terrace Garage will be closed from Monday, June 3rd through Sunday, August 25th for necessary repairs; during this period no daily parking requests will be accepted as there will be no available capacity (regular ETG parkers will be relocated temporarily to IAB).

As per University policy, the primary use of the limited space in the Morningside garages is to provide regular parking for eligible faculty, and after they have been accommodated, senior administrators, and accordingly daily parking is extremely limited during the academic year, particularly on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.  When there is sufficient space for daily parking, it is made available to visitors to campus participating in classes, meetings, and events and to faculty and administrators in connection to a specific University business purpose, and a $22 daily charge applies. Requests should be made no later than noon one business day prior; earlier requests are greatly appreciated.  Requests received after 3 p.m. on the prior business day, when they can be accommodated, carry a $22 additional fee.  Should space be available, it will be assigned in either the IAB garage, located on West 118th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, or the Engineering Terrace Garage, located at Amsterdam Avenue and West 119th Street. For more information, visit our General Information page.  Cancellations must be made no later than 3 p.m. on the prior business day to avoid being charged.
