Residential Services- Housing Application

If you are interested in living on campus within Teachers College, Columbia University student housing, the application for Spring, Summer A/B and Fall 2015 is now available by clicking on the link below.

The Office of Residential Services at Teachers College offers a variety of housing options for students interested in single or family living (married students, students with domestic partners, and single parents). Our single and family student options feature furnished rooms with access to fitness rooms, TV lounges, computer rooms and study rooms.  Unit prices include heat, hot water, electricity (Grant and Sarasota residents must pay monthly electricity and gas charges), local phone with caller ID and voicemail, internet access and cable television service. Visit our website for additional information about our housing options and housing eligibility.

The application fee is $30, which is non-refundable and your housing application can be submitted prior to applying for Teachers College but only students who have been accepted to Teachers College are eligible to receive housing. Applicants are notified a few weeks before assignments begin of when housing -'rounds' (available housing assignments are offered to active applicants) will take place. An applicant's housing application becomes "ACTIVE" once they are:  Accepted to Teachers College in a degree-granting program, pay their Admissions Deposit and have no HOLDS on their account that would prevent them for being assigned campus housing

Please note:

  •        Your housing application is complete when:


    1.      All required fields are filled

    2.      The application fee ($30) is paid

    3.      Your application is submitted

  •        Submitting this application does not guarantee housing


  •        Retain the application confirmation that is e-mailed to you once your application is submitted


  •        Housing applications are prioritized by:


      • Date application is received
      • Out-of-region students receive priority over in-region students (less than 30 miles from Manhattan)

             As applicants are accepted to TC and pay their tuition deposit, they enter the housing queue based on their application date and region status.  Thus, one's wait-list number may fluctuate in either direction.

    If you are interested in Summer ONLY housing do not submit this application. You should request our Summer Conference Housing accommodation.  Application for Summer Conference Housing will be available on our website on December 22, 2014.
