Roommates

For those selecting University Housing, your roommate will be assigned to you (unless you’re living with your partner). In some cases, you will live with another CBS student, in others a graduate student from another Columbia school.

For those not in University Housing, there are a variety of options for finding a potential roommate:

CBS Roommate Tracker (Google doc with information about incoming students seeking roommates) http://bit.ly/mvO4xV

Craigslist (just beware of scams!) http://newyork.craigslist.org/hhh

A few things to consider when looking for a roommate:

  • You will be spending 99.9% of your time doing CBS stuff with CBS people – so you may want to live with someone outside of the CBS bubble to have a break once in a while…
  • On the other hand, it’s great to live with someone that understands the crazy awesomeness that is Columbia Business School
  • There is also always the option of renting a studio / single bedroom apartment and living on your own, though this comes with a slightly higher price tag
