TC's Rain Garden

The New York Times visits the rain garden in TC's courtyard, conceived by alumnus Colin Schumacher and designed by Marnie Majorelle, on a hot day when rain has been scarce.


Teachers College brings together graduate students from all over the world in an environment that provides a unique opportunity to establish new friendships, explore other worldviews, and take advantage of all that New York City offers. Living close to campus affords students easy access to the library, classrooms, gymnasium, and other Columbia University facilities. Students may choose to take advantage of a wide range of planned residence hall activities, club meetings, departmental lectures, and cultural events that take place on TC’s campus in addition to the larger Columbia campus.

Teachers College is a vibrant and integrated part of the Morningside Heights section of New York City. This multicultural, urban environment impacts almost everything TC does and will provide unique educational and social opportunities found nowhere else. Teacher education students complete their practicum in the New York City public schools, while social and organizational psychology students work as interns in businesses from Wall Street to Midtown. Arts education students are interns at museums, galleries and arts organizations. And when you need to unwind, use your student ID for free admissions to cultural institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art or get discounted tickets to performances at world-renowned venues like Lincoln Center. We encourage you to explore all that the campus, the neighborhood, and the city have to offer.
