COVID-19 Update: Building Access on Morningside Campus

March 20, 2020

Due to COVID-19, only essential personnel are required to be physically present on campus. Earlier this week, all academic and administrative buildings on the Morningside campus with card-reader-only access were set to weekend access.

This means that you will only be able to access these buildings if your Columbia University ID (CUID) would give you access on a typical weekend. If you are on campus, be sure to carry your CUID with you at all times.

Visit the ID Card Access page or email [email protected] if you have any questions or issues regarding building access.

For more information regarding the University's response to COVID-19, visit or call Columbia’s COVID-19 hotline at 212-854-9355 (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
