Columbia encourages all of its employees to use public transportation. Limited parking space is, however, available on each of the University’s New York City campuses. (While carpooling is encouraged, parking is generally available at the Lamont and Nevis campuses.) Rank, tenure, proximity to work, and availability of public transportation are all factors considered in determining who is eligible for the small number of spaces available.

The University operates a number of facilities on or near campus for officers who commute to work and for those who need 24-hour parking. Spaces are rented on a monthly basis. Availability is extremely limited and there is a substantial waiting list. A committee of senior administrators reviews all requests for parking. If you wish to request parking, consult with your supervisor or departmental administrator.
There are also several private garages within the Morningside Campus vicinity. Please note that this list is not complete and should not be interpreted as a recommendation of these establishments.
