Housing Information

Learn how to secure accommodations for your time at Columbia Law School.

While our housing office makes every effort to accommodate transfer students, on-campus housing is not guaranteed.

You can choose from the following options:

Columbia’s Off-Campus Housing Assistance (OCHA) office helps Columbia students and affiliates find rental housing in the metropolitan area. OCHA manages a database called the Housing Registry, which displays available rooms and apartments in non-Columbia-owned buildings and sublets of units in Columbia-managed housing. Prospective roommates can also connect with each other on this site.
