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
