Student Registration Information

Spring Extensions & Early Arrivals

Students who are sponsored only for spring extensions or early arrivals do not need to register for summer housing. Columbia Housing will contact them via email with instructions. 

CC / SEAS students

Please advise CC and SEAS students that they are only required to register for summer housing through the Housing Portal if they intend to stay on campus for sessions for which they are not sponsored. To ensure they receive housing, they must complete the application by the stated deadline. See the Housing Calendar for specific dates.
