Malcolm X Lounge


The Malcolm X Lounge, located on the first floor of Hartley Hall, is a space that is operated by the student group, Black Students Organization (BSO).


Students that require lounge access must submit a request to their advisor. Residential Life will submit a roster to Columbia Housing. The student can then visit the Hartley Hospitality Desk and a sticker will be placed on their CUID to show the to the Public Safety guard when entering Hartley Hall for access into the Malcolm X Lounge.

Guests for the lounge must be submitted to the group’s advisor 48 hours in advance and must be accompanied by someone with a valid CUID. Residential Life will submit a guest list to Public Safety for access into the lounge. On the day of the event, an Event Host will be stationed at the guard’s desk making sure guests can enter the building.
