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.
- Online webinar. The OCHA webinar is a great tool for students who are beginning their NYC apartment search.
- Counseling from affiliated brokers. Columbia Residential works with two local realty agencies, Citi Habitats and Douglas Elliman. Counseling sessions with these agencies are free. If you choose to use broker services, all fees are pre-negotiated and set by Columbia University. Requests for counseling can be made online (use your UNI to log in).
