Proxy Representative


In instances where a resident is off-campus and needs to retrieve an item in their room or suite, they can give permission for a proxy representative  to enter their assigned space. Proxy representatives do not have to be affiliated with the University. 


Columbia Housing will only recognize permission granted through the Proxy Representative Form. If Columbia Housing approves the proxy representative, a staff member will grant the non-resident entry to a room or suite. Housing reserves the right to deny a proxy representative for any reason. Residents are allowed one complimentary proxy representative per term. For each subsequent proxy representative, the resident will be charged $20 to their student account.    


  1. Complete the Proxy Representative Form
  2. The resident requesting a proxy representative will receive an email notification from Housing. The email will contain confirmation or denial of the proxy representative and other important details.
