Temporary Change to Guest Access in Residence Halls

Students received a message on January 13 reinforcing key policies and protocols for COVID-19 operations as we begin the spring semester. Included is a temporary change to guest access in residence halls.

January 14, 2022

Updated Guest & Visitor Policy

Effective January 14 at 5:00 p.m., there are temporary access restrictions for guests and visitors in Columbia residence halls. CC/SEAS residential students will continue to be able to swipe into all residence halls.

Barnard, GS, and students with commuter access will be temporarily prohibited from entering Columbia residence halls as a guest or visitor.

Non-affiliates continue to be prohibited from entering Columbia residences, and these revised restrictions will remain in effect until the end of January, at which time we will re-evaluate and provide updated information.
