Visiting Students: Is housing available on-campus?

October through April Rotations
On-campus student housing may be available during these months. To request housing, please submit a ticket via the 'OPEN TICKET: Contact P&S Education' link to the right hand side. Please choose 'I'm a Visiting Medical Student' from the 'Class of...' drop down menu. 

May through September Rotations
On-campus housing is not available during these months.

You can review the off-campus housing office website here: http://www.cumc.columbia.edu/facilities-management/housing/off-campus-housing.

Additionally, you may wish to do an Internet search or check New York-based newspapers to see if you can find any available sublets for your time at P&S. There are no sites or periodicals that we endorse; however, there may be resources online specifically for visiting medical students, like Rotating Room [https://rotatingroom.com/].
