About University Life

"The mission of the new Office of University Life will be to further the academic and community experience of students, faculty and staff at Columbia."

- Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger 

At the Office of University Life, our focus is on the University community.

Columbia is intensely diverse and robustly pluralistic -- with 16 schools and students, faculty and staff from myriad disciplines, backgrounds and experiences. Yet we share a collective commitment to advancing learning and knowledge at the highest level, and to sharing these efforts thoughout the world. 

The Office of University Life is your hub for University-wide student life information and initiatives.

  • Learn about Columbia resources. 

  • Join us for lively campus conversations on pressing issues in AWAKENING OUR DEMOCRACY and other forums and pop-up events.

  • Take a break with yoga on the lawns, Wellness Days @Columbia and StudyBreak @ CU.

  • Help shape community citizenship at Columbia through workshops, task forces and working groups with students, faculty and administrators from across the University. You can step up and join the team leading the Sexual Respect and Community Citizenship Initiative, as one option.

Here's a look at some of our work. Be sure to check out the other parts of this website for more.
