International Students

If you are an international first-year student and not participating in a pre-orientation program, your move-in date is Sunday, August 24, 2014. Housing will send you an email to confirm this. If you are accepted into a pre-orientation program, that program will provide you with an alternative date. 

If you are a transfer, visiting, or combined-plan student, your move-in date is Tuesday, August 26. 

All international students should visit International Students and Scholars Office for information about Visas and other pertinent info and the Coming to Columbia guide. They've also prepared a Survival Guide that you might find of use.

In addition, you should visit the International Student Programs and Services Office for more undergraduate campus resources. If you have any questions, email us.
